Urban Exploration Events

What are Urban Explorations?

The Urban Explorations are study visits hosted by the CCSC Urban Labs in five different European cities: Košice, Madrid, Lund, Helsinki and Timisoara. The Urban Explorations are open for an international audience and each one of them will host at least 50 participants, including representatives of cultural and creative spaces, policymakers and leaders of other grass-roots and public cultural organisations.

During two days, the participants will learn about the work of the CCSC Urban Labs, will be introduced to some of the most prestigious cultural organisations in each city by the hand of their managers, and network with other international and local culture professionals.

Open Call for Participation in Urban Explorations

The Cultural and Creative Spaces and Cities project offers travel support for 25 cultural leaders to participate in these five events. Read more about the call and apply before 23 February 2020.
