A new Training Hotspot is coming along and this time it goes live from Ancona (Italy), organized by TrainArt’s leading partner Consorzio Marche Spettacolo.

From 1st to 5th February, To The TrainHEART – A TRAINART’s focus on core skills for CCIs will reunite Field A (New management models for cultural spaces) and Field B (Artistic interventions in non-conventional contexts) for a training that involves each field’s core skills for competitiveness in the cultural and creative sector.

The first two days (1st and 2nd Feb) will provide insights on Field A, covering the topics of revenue streams, functions and governance.

The following two days (3rd and 4th Feb) will offer an overview of examples in Field B for public and private commissions. The topics touched will be urban regeneration, social inclusion and artistic interventions in companies.

The last day (5th Feb) gathers all the beneficiaries, both from field A and B, and will be divided into an open-to-all section in the morning, where everyone interested can join, and a workshop in the afternoon, organized exclusively for TrainArt’s beneficiaries, where discussions will be directed towards building a solid baseline for the future pilot actions expected by the project.
