Empowering current and aspiring artists through the development of digital skills and competences

Τhe project

The main aim of the DIGI HELICON project is to empower current and aspiring artists (with a focus on women and on those from vulnerable groups such as migrants/refugees, long-term unemployed, LGBTQI, people with disabilities, etc), through the development of their digital skills and competences, facilitating their access to the labour market and fostering their resilience in a digitally transformed post-COVID-19 cultural ecosystem.

Therefore, mapping activities will be developed to identify the necessary digital skills & competences that artists lack, as well as a capacity building methodology, a handbook for artists that will include best practices & case studies, an open access online course for digital skills development for artists and aspiring artists, workshops, a mentoring scheme in all partners’ countries and a virtual exhibition where the works of selected artists from all participating countries will be exhibited.

During its 36-month lifetime, DIGIHELICON will directly and indirectly positively impact  at least:

At least

At least


artists from vulnerable/disadvantaged groups participating in 6 national workshops
