180 Creative Camp


180 Creative Camp is an 8 day bootcamp full of workshops, conferences and concerts that already took place in different cities in Europe. It welcomes more than a hundred aspiring creators from all over the world for a week of creative collaborations in media arts.

Why is it a good practice in the creative area?

180 Creative Camp is and example of an event dedicated to the artistic community that has a visible local impact. Therefore has the potential to raise awareness for the importance of creativity and share best practices in this area, bringing together artists (renown and beginners), students, and local communities in the same space. 

It provides the time and space for young people to share ideas and experiences, learn from each other and from various inspiring artists.
