Online @cademy Conference – 2020

On the 2nd of October, 2020, Pro Progressione has organised its first large-scale digital conference titled @cademy Conference: Social art practices in the digital era.

The recording of the conference is available here: @cademy Conference

The event was part of Pro Progressione’s Academy for Actors of Civil Change project and has revolved around the topic ‘Social art practices in the digital era – Mapping the Covid impacts’. The conference has featured 8 international speakers.

All around the world, professionals such as social art practitioners, youth workers and social workers working with underprivileged youth found themselves in a new situation in 2020 where unpredictable circumstances determined how they work. Many of them struggled with adapting, although there were some who had been able to settle and move on. What determines a successful adaptation? What are the lessons learned and best practices? What are the identified aeras for improvement? How to make social art practices fit for the digital age? The @cademy Conference and its speakers’ attempted to answer these questions!

  • Get an overview of Covid impacts on social art practices
  • Get an insight into the vision and learnings of international professionals on the current situation
  • Learn new ways on how to make social art practices fit for the digital age
