The representatives of institutional and business actors in the tourism and culture area of Corfu were invited to sign a COLLABORANDO Cooperation Agreement with a view to creating the “Business Network of tourist services”.
The aim of K.EL.A.L.P. is to promote and strengthen an open to all study of the two cultures to better understand “what unites us, rather than what separates us” through research, analysis, discussion, and dialogue, as well as targeted actions and programmes to inform / raise the awareness of experts and the public on Greek and Arabic literature, poetry and language.
The ForCulture initiative aimed at providing a wide selection of courses from different disciplines and specialised trainings combined with exploring new experiences in Greece. In addition, it sought to give the citizens - both local and visitors of the selected regional Greek sites – the chance to communicate with the activities of the ForCulture students for mutual cultural enrichment.
This initiative was a proposal of the INNOViMENTOR project at the initiative of CulturePolis to exploit its results and aimed at successful mentoring and training of small and medium-sized businesses in the tourism sector, especially those based in regional, remote and sparsely populated areas, in order to be given the opportunity to develop at regional, national and international level through innovative technological applications.
CulturePolis designed the creation of an Incubator for Cultural and Creative Companies addressed to members of the Ecosystem of Cultural and Creative Industries for the development of their professional skills and provided them with space to prepare their own business work in cooperation with scientists and professionals of art and culture.
In the last years, CulturePolis took an active part in all consultations by institutions such as the municipality of Corfu and the Region of Ionian Islands on culture and sustainable development and submitted complete and innovative proposals for exploitation by those institutions.
