Every ECoC journey lasts around 10 years, from start to finish, and involves the ever present challenge of how to engage with a complex pool of stakeholder groups, upskill professionals, and connect and grow together as a Capital of Culture. The DeuS project is introducing a unique tool that can help throughout the ECoC journey.

Building on the experience of Open Design School Matera and Matera 2019, European Capital of Culture, the DeuS partnership is ready to present their DeuS Living Lab methodology: challenge-based learning opportunities, capacity building and multi-stakeholders’ engagement and contribution.

Running an ECoC program is a vast and complex task: it requires the involvement of a large scale and diverse group of stakeholders and a multifaceted set of skills hard to find in one person.
To face the complexity and the many challenges that coordinators deal with, the DeuS Living Lab methodology offers a unique chance to transform elaborate challenges into a learning opportunity and deliver effective solutions. This goes for not only the coordinators, but just as much the participants and stakeholders. The methodology is challenge based which enables participants to work on a real life scenario while upskilling, engaging in peer-to-peer learning and, best of all, creating successful outcomes to the benefit of the ECoC year.
“The DeuS Living Lab method is a dynamic tool to engage with diverse participants and stakeholders to solve a real challenge that in the end creates value, not only for the participants themselves, but also for the community as a whole. It is a tool that guides participants through a co-creation process with peer-to-peer learning. This is the essence and beauty of the DeuS Living labs. They provide a sought after solution and enable fast, effective and valuable capacity building in the process.

On December 16th , from 09:30 onward, is possible to tune into Radio DeuS and learn more about the DeuS journey and its achievements. The pop-up radio station will deliver a range of programs throughout the day. Exchanges and reflections will be stimulated together with invited experts representing the cultural sector, from policy to practice.
Relevant highlights include the program “ People have the Power“ where guests will dive into the DeuS Living Lab methodology, give their insight on practical pilot tests and plant seeds for future developments. Don’t miss “Future skills for creative people “, a radio show dedicated to the competencies needed within CCI, with a special angle focusing on how European Capitals of Culture, working with Education and Research, can be the catalyst for innovation in skills development and learning for the sector.

Is it possible to find the full program of the day here and register to actively participate in the radio show and contribute to debates and topics with your questions or suggestions.
DeuS is an Erasmus+ funded pilot project running from 2020-2021 coordinated by Matera Basilicata 2019 Foundation, the organization behind Matera 2019, European Capital of Culture.
