Another goal is to present the developments of links created between innovation, research and education – the three sides of the ‘knowledge triangle’. Lastly, also the the students’ outputs from the new course module connected to Artistic and Cultural Activity 2 (O4).
The event will exhibit the project’s findings and products, showcasing cultural diversity and the creation of intercultural dialogue at a public exhibition focusing on innovative practices built on shared cultural heritage.
The event will present the project’s outline (2020), objectives and expected outcomes, as well as the designs and prototypes developed by the students in Artistic and Cultural Activity 2 (O4). The event will be carried out as a Session and a Workshop during a Summer School involving C7 and C8 to initialize and catalyze a reaction and thereby perform actions and new designs that create innovative practices built on shared cultural heritage connections.
Furthermore, there will be made a documentation and evaluation that will be part of Intellectual Output O7, Learning / teaching / training material – Manual / handbook / guidance material including the multiplier event (a Session and a Workshop at the Biennale).
