Aims and Objectives: The co-creation project aims to develop best practices and innovative approaches for increased cooperation between volunteers and professionals in cultural associations, public cultural institutions and cultural departments of municipalities. The aim is to identify the ”transformative potential” of this special form of cooperation and to promote creative empowerment.
The partnership consists of four partners from Denmark, Austria and Finland. It is expected that the project can help foster a co-creative practice in local communities, which aims for greater equality. Citizens and other civil society actors should not only be involved as co-implementers, but also as co-initiators and co-designers, especially in the field of culture and leisure.
