IGCAT visits Rhodes candidate European Capital of Culture 2021

IGCAT experts, Diane Dodd and Mary Miller visited Rhodes, Greece on 27 – 30 July 2015 as part of an introductory training package designed by the International Institute of Gastronomy, Culture, Arts and Tourism. The visit followed an earlier meeting between Dr. Diane Dodd and Aliki Moschis-Gauguet, coordinator of the candidature for Rhodes European Capital of Culture 2021, to discuss plans about Rhodes’ bid for ECOC 2021. IGCAT’s Director provided Ms Moschis-Gauguet with her expertise and advice, designing a specific training package for the city.

All the workshops and the meetings held in Rhodes during the week were focused on the foundations for the first bid book –  the needs and aims of the city, the vision, the priorities for the programme and how Rhodes could articulate this with the European Agenda in mind.

The main objective of the visit was to capture the hearts and minds of an active citizenship in Rhodes and to help them in their bid to be European Capital of Culture in 2021. Both Diane Dodd and Mary Miller were highly impressed by the energy and the enthusiasm of the city, concluding that the overall impression of Rhodes and the bid team are incredibly positive.
