Although the Covid emergency is a global challenge that hit each and everyone of us, some countries, some sectors, some individuals, are now more vulnerable than others.
The cultural sector in Italy is facing a major crisis, in which categories, approaches and tools might have to change completely to foster new participation in and for communities. This is why Compagnia di San Paolo has decided to ask Italian professionals and cultural organisation connected to their network, to open a major conversation with their European peers, by launching together with the European Cultural Foundation and Itinerari Paralleli, a two day hackathon for culture! An opportunity to meet (digitally), foster networks, shape projects and create new opportunities for cultural solidarity and participation!
Under four main challenges, Italian professionals and organisations can apply (deadline July 22nd at 12:00 pm) and present an idea or project asking their European peers for skills, competences, networks or simply an inspiring brainstorming! What are you waiting for?! Jump in Hack4Cult and start shaping your cultural future...

How it works
We ask Italian cultural organisation and professionals to apply with an idea or draft project under a one of the 4 challenges. In a second phase European peers will apply and step in to join an idea or project and create a Working Table (WT) with Italian pals. On July 24th and 25th each WT will have a webinar room for live sessions, a cloud repository to share materials and a digital management tool for interaction and workflow.
- For each WT, a Mentor will be in charge of the workflow and will be the contact point for the organisers
- After 48h all WTs will upload their project format that will be shown on the event website for follow-up networking, advocacy and funding opportunities
Hack4Cult final results!
Check the ideas presented as a result of Hack4Cult. After three days of co-design and idea generation, 6 teams of Italian and European professionals produced or adapted, guided by a mentor and with the support of business clinics sessions with experts, six projects focusing on cultural participation. To know more about the projects and the Hack4Cult process please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the next months, one or more of these projects might be evaluated for further support and visibility by institutional partners of the event. Stay tuned!
