Charter validation phase
A-
A+
The Charter is created based on an extensive case-study and literature research, validated by experts during a series of workshops. The aim of the validation phase of the project was to ensure that the recommendations comprising the Charter were clear, useful, and convincing.

After having completed the first and second stages of the HOMEE project – the literature review and the in-depth study of real-life cases of mega-events organized in Genoa (ECoC 2004), Milan (EXPO 2015), Wrocław (ECoC 2016), Hull (UK City of Culture 2017), Pafos (ECoC 2017) and Matera (ECoC 2019) – the HOMEE team moved to the next phase: generating guidance and policy recommendations to support heritage preservation policy and mega-event planning in future host cities in Europe and beyond. To ensure their correctness and usefulness, a decision was taken to consult the content of the recommendations with experts in the field. Consequently, a series of validation workshops was organised:

  • The Mega-events in Heritage-rich Cities virtual workshop (April 3, 2020)
  • Emerging Challenges for Mega-Events in Heritage-Rich Cities during the COVID-19 era virtual seminar (November 13, 2020)
  • Autumn Charter validation workshops
  • Interviews with experts on the situation of events during the pandemic
