In 2020, due to the pandemic, the Summer Academy (SACCI) went digital.
As in the previous two editions, Lia Ghilardi was asked to develop the programme, as well as facilitating and moderating all the 15-plus sessions.
The impact of the pandemic on cultural institutions, organisations and on the creative industries, were unpacked during this pioneering online edition of the Summer Academy, which also included speakers’ testimonials and the presentation of inspiring case studies by participants and by the other local partners, such as the Trentino School of Management. An unprecedented number of people (about 90) contributed to this highly stimulating event.
Two reports, written by Lia Ghilardi and containing an extensive overview of the benefits and challenges of mobilizing culture and the creative industries for local development, are available on the Resources pages of this website, and on the Trentino School of Management pages.
