River//Cities hosting Transnational I_Improve Project Meeting (TM5) from Gdansk

On 07 July 2021 River//Cities Foundation hosted from Gdansk - on digital platform our  (officially) last transnational (TM5) event which is closing our I_Improve project's chapter.

It was a series of great presentations, run by each organisation summarising their projects, methodology, distribution channels, whom their project was addressed to, and outlining the perspective of further development. (list of specific topics is listed below).

Even though each of us  have learnt and followed each others progress, it was very interesting to hear the summaries of partner's projects, see snapshots and short films documenting each others work, and to learn about partner's early successes of  dissemination.

It was also very evident that all of us are really proud of what was achieved during this difficult and lengthy project, especially that during its course many of us had to transition from working in what we knew as a norm to a digital platforms (because of the pandemic). 

Also  we were so used to meeting each other and seeing our partners in their cities, in their environments during any project exchanges, whereas during this project we were on some point  'robbed' of this opportunities.

We also shared our feelings on the project, on the whole learning process, talked about the highs and lows,  and  most importantly about the feeling which most of us share, that even though the project is officially finishing, it is just the beginning for our projects outcomes - to be shared with others, showcased, duplicated, enjoyed.

We are really looking forward to getting the results out there - for others to use  produced by us great and useful tools and methods.

One of the outcomes of the project was a creation of the game which reflects different aspects of methodologies developed and produced by partners.

So watch the space and keep an eye on our future posts when we start sharing the outcomes of our Erasmus+ project and tools that we produced, which we hope will be very useful for other cultural organisations, libraries,  local communities, artists, and policymakers alike.

Below is a gallery of screenshots from our meeting.
