Culture as Capital  

Learn and share practices and stories
of emerging ways of working

1-2 October, Plovdiv, Bulgaria

Does your work culture support the impact of your organisation? We are a group of professionals curious about emerging ways of working that help purpose-driven organisations thrive in times of changing working narratives.

After the first event in Plovdiv, Bulgaria, back in 2016 we kept exploring more practices and stories that have helped us and people like us to build our organisations.

What are the organisational practices that support us
to be both successful and stay true to our values?

Join us in Plovdiv again the Culture as Capital gathering to share concrete practices and stories and learn about the emerging ways to organise for impact. Share your own story, practices and how you work, dip into the collective wisdom of peers like you to help overcome the similar roadblocks we are all facing.

We strongly believe in the power of participation and community. Rather than falling back on lectures, experts, and panel discussions, our programme is designed to encourage collective learning and insights.

The Entrepreneurship in the Emerging Paradigm project is the spin off of an Erasmus+ funded Programme of the EU that runned for two years and ended in 2017.

The event takes place in the run up to the Plovdiv - European Capital of Culture 2019, see program. It can also be combined with an Art of Hosting training held on September 28-30th of 2018.

Who is it for?

Social entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs in public administration and businesses, freelancers, changemakers, and activists.

Participation Fee

We believe everyone who wants to join the event should be able to do so. Hence we are using the Shared Economy model to organise this event. Instead of a strict fee, we rely on a common effort to make it as good as possible. In this sheet you can see the estimated budget, based on which the suggested participation fee is 75 Euros to cover the costs exceeding the grant from the Erasmus+ programme. In the Shared Economy, everyone is invited to pay as much as they can. If you pay more than the suggested fee, then you will support somebody who couldn’t afford to be there otherwise. Contact us if you have any questions or would like to learn more.
