We are excited to announce the beneficiaries of the DISCE P2P Recovery Programme!
Almost 30 candidates applied to the call, with 21 cultural organizations being selected to take part in the programme activities. The participants represent a diverse range of cultural operators: from a municipal theatre in Larissa, Greece, to the very first fab lab in Europe from Barcelona, to a small creative enterprise initiated by 7 women in the city of Rome. Participants vary in size, income streams, areas of expertise and mission. Yet, they all contribute to the complex and multidimensional fabric of the cultural and creative sectors in Europe.
The DISCE P2P Recovery Programme was initiated to support the European cultural and creative sectors in this time of unprecedented challenge due to COVID-19. PRP is designed to engage with stakeholders within Cultural and Creative Industries in Cyprus, Greece, Italy and Spain coherently with developing sustainable and inclusive creative economies in the EU. The region was chosen due to the expressed need for additional support, given the fall-out for the sector during the pandemic.
The PRP programme will be managed by Trans Europe Halles – a member of DISCE’s consortium and an established and well-known cultural network of grass-roots cultural centres – and Olivearte Cultural Agency – a prominent cultural consulting agency with profound knowledge of the sector. Together they are creating a programme, based on collaboration and innovation practices to help participants address their challenges and get back on track.
We invite you to check out the latest DISCE press release to know more about the selected participants and the programme activities.
