On 9 and 10 June, we present two days of activities related to the Cultural Innovation International Prize and its theme for the 2014-2015 edition: new audiences and their relationships with cultural institutions. Workshops, talks, screenings, project presentations, and a closing party are the highlights of a programme that culminates in the announcement of the jury's decision and the presentation of the Prize to the winning project.

“AUDIENCES IN ACTION” WORKSHOP // Tuesday 9 June (from 6 to 9 pm) and Wednesday 10 June (from 10 am to 2 pm and 4 to 7 pm)

A workshop in which to develop co-creation methods that take into account the many possible approaches to participation, and the need to resolve some of the conflicts that arise from putting it into practice. Workshop participants will work in teams to create a draft cultural project based on user-centred design strategies, and will implement dynamics for brainstorming ideas, shared decision making, and the public presentation of projects. // Led by Irene Lapuente (La Mandarina de Newton).
