      Creative Digital Transformations

      Adapting local cultural, touristic and educational activities to a new virtual paradigma by creatively digitalising community offers

      The COVID-19 pandemic has revealed that many sectors are not prepared for the digital era, as not all their processes, activities or events can be adapted to a virtual format.
      It has also become clear that sectors not typically declared as ‘essential’ are indeed essential: society is beginning to understand how important culture is for our well-being.

      The Creative Digital Transformation project aims at reinforcing adults‘ professional competences and skills in adapting local cultural, touristic and educational activities to a new virtual paradigm.
