On March 29th, 2023, Solidarity Tracks organized the “Train2Sustain – Digitalization of Art & Culture” dissemination event.
The aim of the event was to share the results of the project and present the train2sustain.net platform, introducing young artists to the interactive questionnaire.
The Solidarity Tracks team prepared a roll-up, T-shirts, and stickers featuring the link and QR code to the platform to promote and attract young artists to join and explore the project’s platform. The Train2Sustain multiplier event was held at the Music School of Lefkada, Greece, with the aim of sharing and disseminating the Train2Sustain.net platform and the project’s results to local youth with an artistic profile, teachers of the musical school, various local NGOs, institutions, and human resources active in the field of art and culture. The event served as an opportunity to introduce the project partners from “Art Mine” (Austria), “Gain&Sustain: Europe” (Austria), “Zveza Mink Tolmin” (Slovenia), and “Musee National Zrenjanin” (Serbia) and showcase the digital and dynamic platform they developed as part of their strategic partnership.
Target Audience: The target audience for the event mainly consisted of local youngsters between 16 and 19 years old, with an interest in art and culture. Additionally, teachers from the Music School of Lefkada and representatives from various local NGOs and institutions involved in the art and cultural sectors were present. The platform aimed to address young individuals with fewer opportunities, who faced challenges in accessing cultural practices, and sought to enhance their personal and professional development through the platform’s resources and opportunities.
Outcome: The multiplier event successfully engaged a total of 30 attendees. The project partners introduced themselves and presented the Train2Sustain.net platform, highlighting its interactive nature and potential as an information hub, learning platform, networking space, and creative outlet. The event emphasized the significance of the platform’s digital approach, particularly in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, which limited access to cultural experiences and increased physical and social isolation for many.
During the extensive platform presentation, the attendees were acquainted with the features and functionalities of the platform. The participants showed keen interest in the educational videos and digital museum exhibitions available on the platform. Moreover, they appreciated the user-friendly interface, finding it easy to navigate and utilize.
The event successfully achieved its goal of sharing and disseminating the project’s intellectual outputs, specifically the Train2Sustain.net platform, to the target audience. By showcasing the platform’s capabilities and opportunities within the Erasmus+ KA2 program, the multiplier event encouraged local youngsters and stakeholders in the art and cultural sectors to actively engage with the digital platform.
Overall, the Train2Sustain multiplier event provided a valuable opportunity for networking, knowledge exchange, and enhancing cultural accessibility for the youth audience and art professionals in the local community. The positive feedback received from the attendees indicated a strong interest and appreciation for the platform’s potential impact on fostering creativity and cultural engagement among the target audience.
