Participation and co-creation through culture in Kortrijk

Co-creation and participatory activities are now integral part of cities’ local cultural policies and are increasingly being implemented. These processes illustrate how art and cultural heritage can be a driver for change in society, how art and cultural heritage have the power to address social issues and challenges; they were the focus of an online peer-learning visit hosted by Kortrijk in April.


EUROCITIES, in partnership with KEA, ERRIN, Europa Nostra and the Architects Council of Europe, has been selected by the European Commission to implement Cultural heritage in action, a peer-learning scheme financed by the European Union on cultural heritage to support exchanges between large numbers of cities, regions and stakeholders, thus building a broad learning community.
