Workshops

The six 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.

Be part of it! Let’s create the “Kultur stadtt der Berge” until 2030 together. A city of culture and mountains, a city of depths (cultural knockdown) and heights (up to 2334 m), a city of contradictions, tensions and creative forces.

I. Workshop
City & Image: Culture instead of the mountains vs. cultural city of the mountains

Mountains, skiing, tourism, all well and good. But are we also a city of culture? And how can the juxtaposition of mountains and culture be turned into something common?

Wednesday, April 14, 2021, 5.00 – 8.30 p.m., in digital space

II. Workshop
Promotion & Work: Art is beautiful, but it makes a lot of work

What will tomorrow’s art production and cultural work look like? What structures and frameworks are needed for it? And what does it mean to promote and communicate art and culture – how, to whom and why at all? How can art and culture become more visible in Innsbruck?

III. Workshop
Education & Society: Let’s educate society!

What does contemporary cultural education look like? Digitalization, demographic change, ecological topics, etc. offer new challenges. How do we deal with them in a creative way? What emerges when we rethink the cultural landscape of Innsbruck?

Tuesday, June 15, 2021, 5.00 – 8.30 p.m., in digital space

IV. Workshop
Space & Collaboration: Who can work with whom?

Where are trendsetting interfaces between tourism and art, business and culture, native and immigrated …? And who can be where? How can public space in Innsbruck be used for art and culture? And which spaces can become long-term or temporary cultural spaces?

Wednesday, September 29, 2021, 5.00 – 8.30 p.m., Haus der Musik Innsbruck (Universitätsstraße 1, 6020 Innsbruck)

Registration period for IV. Workshop (Space & Collaboration, September 29, 2021): Sat., September 4 to Fri., September 17.

V. Workshop
Value & Diversity: Is this art or can it be thrown away?

What is the value of art and culture (monetary and non-monetary)? How should the contemporary interact with tradition, priority setting with diversity and variety? And how should it be promoted and supported?

Monday, October 18, 2021, 5.00 – 8.30 p.m., t.b.a.

VI. Workshop
Open discussion … on the home stretch

Have we discussed everything that is needed to equip Innsbruck with a good cultural strategy 2030? Who will be involved in which project? What is particularly important? Is there still something of burning importance to us? An open discussion for all involved.

Tuesday, November 9, 2021, 5.00 – 8.30 p.m., t.b.a.
