The INCULTUM project deploys a range of outreach activities which aim at the creation of a network of stakeholders, all over Europe, operating in the different areas of innovation concerned with cultural tourism and, more generally, with access to cultural heritage.
The work done in the Stakehoders mapping activity identifies the following categories that are addressed by INCULTUM and its Pilots, which also form the target audience of networking activities:
- Authorities and policy makers
- Local action groups
- Local farmers, food producers, craftsmen, artists
- Infrastructure providers
- Accommodation providers
- Tourism operators
- Shopping and leisure facilities
- Educational sector
- IT application developers
Within these categories, a special attention is dedicated in the engagament of women, who are reportidly the majority of staff working in cultural tourism; volunteers, as they can play a crucial role in cultural tourism, and minority groups who live in the territories, such as for example religious minorities, marginalized communities, language minorities, people with disabilities, ethnic minorities, migrants, others.
AGENDA AND RELATED ACTIVITIES OF THE INCULTUM NETWORK
COLLABORATIONS AND ASSOCIATE PARTNERS: efforts are deployed for establishing collaborations with existing projects and initiatives that deal with cultural tourism and access to cultural heritage, so to create a community of associate partners (view the current collaborations).
MAILING LIST: the contacts from associate partners and sisters projects, and the registrations received via the INCULTUM website and at events, flow into a mailing list that is used to regularly communicate about topics of interest for the community.
NEWSLETTER: a newsletter is issued twice a year, with key information about the project progress, achievements, events and outcomes.
INFORMATIVE WEBINARS: online events are planned (first one in early 2023) where the members of the stakeholders group can present, engage and share information to each other.
