The coaching sessions are part of the “stretching-out” phase of the project's concept and approach.
As first field operations, they aim at fostering interaction and co-creation among the consortium and local stakeholders to increase impact of and advance understanding on heritage-led innovations and international relations. Consulting local experts enables ILUCIDARE partners to gradually co-develop and set-up the agenda for the next activities (capacity building).
The ILUCIDARE coaching sessions are a preparation for the ILUCIDARE Capacity Buildings, and aim to:
- assess the local level of capacity,
- understand local needs and heritage assets,
- understand what components of heritage-led innovation and international relations are useful for the local context.
The coaching sessions were delivered by a team of facilitators, consisting of scientific (KUL) and training partners: World Monuments Fund (WMF), Cultural Heritage without Borders Kosovo (CHwB), Universidad de Cuenca (UC).
The coaching sessions took place in 12 locations in 9 countries in Europe, the Western Balkans, South America, Middle East, North Africa and Sub-Saharan Africa between June 2019 to January 2020.
