Project summary

Our European added value

The In.P.U.T. project increased the European cooperation:

  • Promoting and improving the cooperation between VET Institutions/Organizations: this cooperation led to the definition of a common approach for the improvement of training paths for the Cultural Events Managers professional profile focusing on key competences (fundraising, events technical/artistic direction, logistics and promotion and communication) and non-formal background.
  • Promoting a strong link between European VET Organizations and Intermediary Organizations: sharing problems and solutions, this cooperation led to the definition of a set of best practices and suggestions in order to improve the quality of transnational mobility opportunities addressed to Cultural Events Managers. The partnership will adopt these suggestions within the framework of an informal network created thanks to the In.P.U.T. project.
  • Laying the foundations for the creation of a “reference point” for international, national and local Arts&Culture communities: the partnership created a reference point for all the people interested in the field of Cultural Events Management, promoting learning and mobility opportunities. During the partnership a strong link was created between the involved institutions but also between professionals and enterprises.
  • Promoting the knowledge of cultural and professional contexts in which the Cultural Events Manager is acting at a European level and, in general, promoting the knowledge of the Cultural and Creative Industry trends and realities.

Realisation of the objectives of the partnerships

The Project achieved three main objectives:

  • comparison between formal and non formal training paths in Cultural Events Management and the real competences displayed “on field” (mostly informal and non formal) by these professionals in order to integrate and improve the training offer
  • identification of strategic informal and non formal competences of the Cultural Events Manager (fundraising, events technical/artistic direction, logistics and promotion and communication)
  • improvement of the quality of European mobility of Events Managers highlighting opportunities and problems/solutions

Problems addresses:

  • differences between the formal and non formal training paths and the “on field” job activities, tasks and responsibilities of the Cultural Events Managers
  • improvement of the quality of VET paths and opportunities for Cultural Events Managers
  • obstacles to the recognition of informal and non formal competences “gained on-field” by the Cultural Events Managers
  • obstacles to the activation and managemenr of european mobility work experiences for the Cultural Events Manager

Approach:

  • The partnership had a 360° look at the Cultural Event Manager profile in order to improve the creativity, competitiveness, the informal and non formal competences recognition, and the European mobility.
  • Project meetings were be attended by staff, trainers/teachers, learners Cultural Events Management professionals to share and compare Creative and Cultural Industry contexts, training contents, informal and non formal competences, best practices on mobility experiences. Each meeting was realized in connection with international arts festival in order to realize a concrete immersion in real cultural and artistic contexts and to have a direct contact with best practices, innovative methodologies and professional.
