How to work with the Conclusions
We do hope that this publication would inspire you – as the manager and/or volunteer of the sector of voluntary arts, amateur arts and heritage – to plan and deliver new cultural/artistic initiatives with the bridging, Inter-European dimension for the communities you work for.
We also hope that reading the good practices gathered here increased your awareness concerning the power the artistic and cultural activities may have in building bridges between former segregated groups; bridges built from “…music, stories, ceramics, songs […] participating in workshops theatre, art, music, nature, meetings and conversations”.
Please feel free to draw and jot down your own conclusions – how to initiate, implement and evaluate new participatory and co-creative activities with a high potential of bridging social capital. Below you will find some supporting questions. Enjoy!
