Peer-to-peer Meetings


Prior to the Long Live Arts Conference, professional peers from all over Europe will form small, dynamic groups to learn from each other's (practical) experiences and exchange best practices.
Together they can draw on the group's collective insight and concentrate on active learning from a European perspective. The peers will explore what further research will be necessary regarding cultural participation and older people and what steps need to be taken for the European convention and for working towards a shared EU policy.
Enrich your conference experience, increase your expertise and be inspired!
