The Study Visit organised by the Municipality of Almeria and the project partners Eptisa and Khora Urban Thinkers forecasted a walking in the urban areas where CAMINA has been developing: the neighbourhoods of Almedina, La Chanca-Pescaderia and the Centre.
The delegation experienced the concept promoted by CAMINA: Culture can connect people living in different urban areas and can become the booster for a process of urban regeneration through a sound inclusion of vulnerable people in cultural activities.
The people living the three neighbourhoods are actively engaged in the project to design and realise a novel cultural offer for all the citizens of Almeria. We believe that CAMINA, through its innovative approach for culture, will enforce the process of urban regeneration that is included in the Almeria 2030 strategy”.
Ramón Fernández Pacheco-Monterreal, Mayor of Almería said
The visit started with an official meeting with Ramón Fernández Pacheco-Monterreal, the Mayor of Almeria, María del Mar Vázquez Agüero, the City Councillor for Presidency and Planification area and Maria del Mar Plaza, Project manager of CAMINA and general manager of the Municipal Corporation Almería 2030, who confirmed the political commitment in supporting CAMINA and its sustainability. They highlighted the importance of the project for the citizens of Almeria, especially in the post-Pandemic period, where people need to benefit of cultural activities in public spaces.
