Event description

Description

In the European Year of Cultural Heritage, this capacity building conference will seek to identify what are
the specificities of volunteering in culture where the beneficiaries of the activities are not as visible as in
other kinds of volunteering.


The motivation of volunteers in culture, that is often related to their passions and interest in art or history, will be
discussed and how this aspect needs to be addressed when managing volunteers engaged in the cultural field will be examined.

Participants will learn how the well- being of volunteers in culture can be protected and how the question of their
skills development can be best approached.


Programme:

Date: 19 April

14:00 Welcome Addresses & Introductions

15:00 - 16:30 Keynote plenary interventions with case studies on:
1) Institutions: How to develop the potential and space for the improved engagement of volunteers in state / municipality institutions seeing them as an additional resource rather than a cost cutting exercise?
2) NGOs: How to harness the passion and interest of citizens in different arts through volunteering in a way that will benefit the wider community and retain the voluntary, citizen led nature of NGOs?
3) Events: How to protect the rights of volunteers in stand alone events such as festivals and concerts, which may have a for-profit characteristic?

Organizer The European Volunteer Centre (CEV)

Organizer of CEV Capacity Building Conference: Volunteering in Culture

The European Volunteer Centre (CEV) is the European network of over 60 organisations dedicated to the promotion of, and support to, volunteers and volunteering in Europe at European, national or regional level. Through our network we work together to promote and support volunteering through advocacy, knowledge sharing and capacity building & training. In this way we reach out to the many thousands of volunteers and volunteer organisations in Europe as a source of support bringing the European dimension to their work.

CEV channels the collective priorities and concerns of its member organisations to the institutions of the European Union and the Council of Europe. Together with other stakeholders we exchange policy, practice and information in order to ensure effective and coherent follow up to European Year of Volunteering 2011 and ensure its legacy through the implementation of the Policy Agenda for Volunteering in Europe (PAVE) and the follow-up “Helping Hands – Hope for Europe” report.
