Meeting hosted by CKI

After finalising the TTPs in the 5 CONNECT countries, all the partners met in Copenhagen from the 1st to the 3rd of July to discuss on evaluation and validation of the programme. Moreover, these discussions served as a starting point to approach the relevant issue of the legacy of the TTP. In this sense, it is worth mentioning that in the case of Poland and Spain, the TTP has been delivered as new postgraduate courses that will have their second edition, starting in January 2020, once the CONNECT project is finished.

It seems incredible, but there are just 6 months ahead of us… 6 exciting months with an important milestone: the Bilbao learning mobility (25th to 27th November 2019), the structure of which we have already started to devise. Bilbao will be the place and the moment where the CONNECT participants will have the chance to share their learnings, network and feel part of something bigger… Will we be able to maintain and enlarge the CONNECT community beyond the project? Will we be able to continue working and innovating in this consortium where new ideas flow and become reality thanks to different perspectives and the amount of energy of the team? That’s the challenge on which we will also work hard in the following months…

On Friday 21st June, we celebrated the closure of our TTP in Spain with an event in Matadero Madrid, one of the organisations that has taken part in this training journey.

At 9h45, we met at the information desk and split into three different groups: postgraduate students, practitioners and mentors. Each group, led by a Deusto trainer, went to a specific location for a focus group, which lasted one hour and a half and served for evaluation purposes.

Afterwards, we met again all together and, after taking some photos, each couple shared with the group a short video from their project, showing what they had done and achieved. We have to congratulate all our participants, because the videos were really amazing!! As to be expected, this was followed by a big applause while they were given their diploma and the newly published book “El desarrollo de audiencias en España. Reflexiones desde la teoría y la práctica”, edited by Macarena Cuenca-Amigo and Jaime Cuenca within the framework of the CONNECT project.

The event finished with a shared lunch in a terrace, enjoying the beginning of summer in Madrid.

On Tuesday 14th May, we had our international CONNECT webinar to bring together some of the mentors and discuss the mentoring scheme in the different hubs. After a brief intro by Macarena Cuenca, the project manager, the webinar was co-led by Adrian de la Court (Goldsmiths) and Antonia Silvaggi (MeltingPro). Goldsmiths, through its Institute for Creative and Cultural Entrepreneurship (ICCE) has a wide experience in mentoring programmes and they, in collaboration with MeltingPro, have been in charge of the design of the CONNECT mentoring scheme.

In this webinar, both partners and mentors reflect on the different experiences of mentoring in the different countries and engage in an interesting discussion. If you missed it live, here you have another chance 😉
