The event consisted of workshops, bilateral meetings and a Creative Camp. Dr. Serena Mingolla wrote a review on the whole event – an interesting piece to catch up if you couldn’t make it to the event itself! Here is a little sneak peak:

“By far the most lively debate – rich in stimulating ideas – took place on the last day of the ECCL meeting, the 24th of May. It focused on creativeness, multimedia, visual arts, theatre, music, and other creative fields with the main goal to pilot new approaches to support collaboration between creative companies. The Creative Camp called “Crossover Creativity Lab” was based on storytelling and concrete living lab activities.”
