To whom is it addressed?
This workshop will be focused on cultural heritage in Baltic Sea Region and digitalization aspects. It will gather exclusive group of experts and participants from the Baltic Sea Region countries, representatives of PA Culture flagships and potential further partners plus organizations experienced in realizing cultural heritage projects. It is especially dedicated for existing and emerging projects and project managers who are interested in developing their project’s ideas, acquiring new project partners, connecting projects with similar ideas and/or gaining the flagship status as it defined in the Action Plan for the EUSBSR. It is the great opportunity to meet creative experts and their initiatives from the BSR as well as to consult future cooperation possibilities or join the existing projects consortia.
The workshop will be held at the premises of the Baltic Sea Cultural Centre and will start with a welcoming coffee and snacks at 15.00 on the 8th of March, ending on the following day around 13.00. An integral part of the workshop is a study visit in the St. John Centre in Gdańsk, the old church converted into the cultural centre. The venue is dedicated to host exhibitions and live music and visual performances due to the building’s unique acoustics.
How to get involved?
The workshop is free of charge. Please keep in mind that there only limited number of seats is available, so please register now and enjoy this unique experience.
Looking forward to meeting you in Gdańsk!
Within the past couple of months the Policy Area Culture has organised four Dissemination Seminars, that provided cultural and creative players with information about funding possibilities and frameworks for co-operation in the Baltic Sea Region; naturally including PA Culture and its flagships.
Most recently, in June, PA Culture organised the 3rd Strategic Project Development Workshop, attended the CBSS Senior Official Group of Culture and gathered several representatives from the Ministries of Culture for the Steering Group Meeting. It's been a busy couple of months and we're very happy with the results and feedback to our work. We're already looking forward to more PA Culture actions later this year. Stay tuned with us for more updates!
We've recently introduced our quarterly newsletter, that keeps you updated about all events and news relevant for the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region and PA Culture. You can find and subscribe to it here!
Also, we'd like you to save the date for November 8th - 10th, as we're planning a great deal of PA Culture acitivities during and around the annual EUSBSR Forum in Stockholm. We'll keep you posted here and via the newsletter and facebook about the details!
We're very proud and happy to announce, that we'll be present at this year's annual EUSBSR Forum in Stockholm, November 8th and 9th. This year's general topic of the forum is "One Region, One Future". In order to continue our work and spread our expertise, we've decided to leave a PA Culture mark on the forum program with a session on Cultural Diversity and our 4th Strategic Project Development Workshop.

4th Strategic Project Development Workshop
We're pleased to announce that the next and 4th Strategic Project Development Workshop will take place right after the Annual EUSBSR Forum on November 9th and 10th lunch-to-lunch in the Goethe-Institute Stockholm. We will continue with a topical focus and besides networking and consulting, we will focus on Audience Development. We are glad to announce that we'll team up with Intercult for the workshop.
The workshop will be started with a few welcome notes from PA Culture and Intercult. The topic will be introduced by Chris Torch, Senior Adviser and Program Director of Intercult. Afterwards attending projects will have a chance to get introduced to each other. In the early afternoon Agata Etmanowicz from Impact Foundation Warsaw will then run a workshop on Audience Development.
