Piloting Report – Poland

In January 2023, MaPa Pasji and SAN organised their blended piloting sessions for students and entrepreneurs.

The piloting was jointly organised by MaPa Pasji and SAN in a blended format as a full-day event. MaPa used their contacts in areas close to Kraków where they are based to recruit participants. An invitation and a programme were developed to advertise the event. Piwniczna-Zdroj cultural centre kindly provided the venue for the workshop.

The first part of the event was delivered face-to-face by Anna and Krzysztof from MaPa Pasji. They discussed the DigitalRoutes@Culture project and its modules as tools and methods for cultural entrepreneurship that are based on the cultural heritage of the region (quests, heritage trails, themed villages, local products or eco-museums).

After lunch, Kasia from SAN joined the event online and presented the project’s digital materials with a particular focus on the platform for creating cultural routes. Participants saw the existing routes as a basis for ones that they could develop themselves and a tool for uploading them onto the platform. In the last part of the workshop, the participant developed their own route of culture.

The various participants of the piloting in Poland.

Here is some verbatim feedback from the participants:

“I came to the workshop because I make handicraft products – drivers’ gloves, hats, etc. – and I would like to learn how to stop making them ‘into a drawer’ and start making money from them.”

“The workshop was very interesting, I intend to use the Digital Routes application for guests who come to Rożnów” (this is the owner of a guesthouse in Rożnów)”

“It was inspiring. I see that we have to cooperate a lot locally to achieve results”

The participants are engaging with Kasia over Zoom.

The program and invitation letter from the event is also available as PDFs.
