Due to the current situation, the first workshop (out of three in total) will take place online (May 3 -May 14, 2021).

The program will start with the preparatory kickoff session for development executive (DE) participants (April 26 - 27, 2021) and afterwards, the DE participants will meet all together with the creative teams for a two-week-long online workshop.  

Congratulations to all selected projects and participants!

Welcome aboard!
