You can get involved here!
The 6 topic workshops between April and November 2021 should be attended by as many actors as possible from Innsbruck’s field of art and culture. In addition, local experts from interface areas such as science, education, youth, social affairs, integration, tourism, creative industries or urban planning will be invited. Participation in the workshops is open to all those interested in the cultural future of Innsbruck.
Methodologically, mainly “Art of Hosting” techniques are applied. The aim is to make diverse groups capable of acting by creating high-quality discussion rooms. Various intervention methods such as World Café, Appreciative Inquiry or Open Space are used in a targeted manner and intensive dialogues are initiated – all along clear guidelines and all based on the baseline study. The results of the individual workshops, including photo documentation, will be published promptly on the website.
The first three dates have now been fixed:
- Wednesday, April 14, 2021, 5 p.m.
- Monday, May 17, 2021, 5 p.m.
- Tuesday, June 15, 2021, 5 p.m.
Duration of the workshops: approx. 3.5 hours. The locations (possibly also a digital variant) and the topics of the workshops will be announced soon, like the dates of the workshops that follow in September, October and November.
