The ADESTE consortium of eight European organisations met in Turin, Italy from 17-19 November 2013 to kick-off the project with the first partner meeting. Participants reviewed the project's work plan, schedule, communication, evaluation and outputs that should be done over the course of the project’s two-year lifespan (01 November 2013 – 30 April 2016). Moreover, the 12 participants were joined by two of the project's associate parnters in Italy: the Ministry of the Cultural Heritage, Activities and Tourism and the Piuconzero Cultural Association.
Over the course of three days, the partners also met and engaged with local cultural operators through a series of organised study visits to the Italian contemporary art foundation Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo and the Palazzo Madama Museum. Both institutions presented special programmes they have developmed and carried out with the specific aim to reach and engage with audiences.
