Peer learning visit in Leeds

Application deadline: 25 March 2022

Do you want to find out how the Leeds museums and galleries services have made innovative use of digital media to maintain and develop contacts with communities, schools and social media audiences throughout the pandemic? Are you curious to know how this has provided a foundation for more recent work to support recovery? Are you passionate about digital engagement with schools and communities?

If you are working on culture and cultural heritage for a city, rural or regional administration from the EU 27 plus the United Kingdom, or working for a civil society organisation, cultural initiative or project, or working for a national administration in charge of culture and cultural heritage, you are eligible to take part in the peer learning visit.

During the peer-learning visit, you will be able to also discuss challenges and barriers encountered along the way and how they were overcome. The visit will provide an intimate and trusting setting to discuss pitfalls and failures, provide feedback and constructive criticism and build solutions together. Selected participants will get useful information and ideas for improving their existing local projects, initiating new ones or transferring some of the presented practices.

We have selected five host cities and regions to give you the opportunity to discuss first-hand how they have successfully implemented their policies and projects and how they locally support culture and cultural heritage. Applications are limited to two preferential choices (one application form per chosen visit) so make sure to check our calendar of visits before applying!

Download and fill in the application form and send it back to culturalheritageinaction@eurocities.eu by 25 March 2022.
