Period and lead partner

The Curricula Guidelines were developed in May - July 2019 with reference to key findings in the Good Practice Report and the Workshop Compendium. Interfolk was editor.

Aim and objectives

The aim has been to develop curricula and to design exemplary course packages that can be tested afterwards. The objectives are

  • To clarify the key findings of the previous desk research, local idea workshops and Nordic Symposium.
  • To provide core curricula for key competence for successful co-creative cooperation.
  • To outline exemplary course packages.

The methodology

The intention is to provide an integrated curriculum for the essential competences and skills for culture actors from respectively the civil society sector and public sector.

The integrated curriculum will be designed with reference to the key findings of the previous desk research, local idea workshops and Symposium Compendium; and it will present the needed key competences and skills, the pedagogical methodology and the validation and transfer methods (how the learned can be transferred to own situation).


The developed curricula can be tested and refined to ready-to-use formative in-service train-ing packages in a regional or national context for paid or voluntary culture actors that are or will be engaged in co-creative and cross-sector cooperation.
