On the 21st May 2019 the 1st EU-VOICE Cultural Info-day took place in Florence. It was organised by Co&So, in collaboration with CESVOT, and hosted in the venue of E.D.A. Servizi, a member co-operative of Co&So which provides cultural, communication and management services to libraries, museums, exhibition halls. More than 25 participants were involved, mainly the representatives of cultural institutions and associations, but even social cooperatives providing social and labour inclusion services for Third Country Nationals (TCN), as well as some future TCN volunteers - in the whole, 12 organisations attending, and more sending messages of interest though could not be at the meeting.
The event started with a short presentation of the EU-VOICE project and its main objectives, which was followed by an interactive world cafè discussion with 3 thematic tables: one dedicated to the needs of cultural institutions regarding hosting volunteers, another dedicated to the possible volunteer roles and activities, the last one dedicated to the organisation of training courses for volunteers.
The event was a big success, and will be followed soon by the 1st Recruitment Info-day with the involvement of potential volunteers.
