Englischsprachiger Workshop von LOCOP: What are the main attributes of grassroots networks? What are the main motives and tools of network formation and management? How can networks support visibility and empowerment? In this workshop we aim to address the issues about the attributes and creation of networks from a practical point of view, based on examples from European Capitals of Culture cities. We have collected participatory exercises and activities to offer a good base for network formation and to deepen and widen existing processes.
