Creativity, talent and formation gather together on a platform for America and Europe

CAMPUS Conecta: Creativity, talent and formation gather together on a platform for America and Europe

Campus Conecta is the first and unique platform and marketplace that connects the creative and cultural talent from America and Europe, with an offer of formal and informal formation in both continents. This project has been made reality thanks to the support of the Acción Cultural Española (AC/E), which allows a notable participation of institutions and organisations of Poblenou Urban District

High schools senior years’ students, college students and professionals got together from the 10th to the 12th of November, for the Feria Campus Conecta’s first edition that gathered 13 creative disciplines, 120 world-wide creative and cultural programs, 20 American and European institutions, 10 Conecta Talks with inspiring characters and 5 Club Conecta events.

An event that was developed in a hybrid way with the presentation of various programs, the Club Conecta activities from virtuality, and the Conecta Talks that were live broadcasted from the EAN University of Bogota, Colombia. 

Claudia Costa, creative director of Poblenou Urban District, participated in one of the Talks to speak about the experience and functions that are developed from Poblenou Urban District, as well as the spaces of Barcelona’s Creative Community that carry out creative and cultural training projects, such as BAU Centro Universitario de Diseño, SAE Institute Spain, El Taller Escuela de Joyería y Open Design Studio, which also participated to the encounter.

From this first launching event, Campus Conecta turns into a permanent marketplace and a great party of talent which will happen twice a year. 

The launching and first edition of Campus Conecta surpassed several forecasts of its offer to the public, such as: the mix of institutions, the program offer and the countries gathered.  

Within the 5 next months, Campus Conecta’s goal is to connect the 1.358 subscribers, 15.000 MailChimp verified contacts, +17.000 followers of the social medias of Conexiones Creativas and 1.400 followers of the Instagram account of Campus Conecta. 

Moreover, with the educational offer, through the web page they’ll get to get in contact with each institution with coordinated personal and joint actions that include:

  • continuous promotion from Campus Conecta
  • Live Bar, such as alternative spaces of connection and visibility for the institutions
  • promotion from the network of partners and belonging institutions

Campus Conecta is a large-scale platform that consolidates itself with the presence and actions of the institutions that activate its formation offer.
