We’re very excited to share the progress we’ve made in this last part of the project. Despite challenges linked to the COVID-19 crisis, partners have strengthened their efforts to deliver on the ground and provide effective support to the cultural and creative industries.

Final Conference Coming Up!

We are pleased to announce that on the 16th of December 2021, creative and cultural professionals have the chance to be part of a unique experience, hosted by DeuS in Matera, Italy. DeuS will run a pop-up radio station created especially for the final conference of DeuS.

The DeuS partners meet in Matera or tune in online to share the achievements of the project and finalise everything there. The conference is divided into several “shows” each focused on the different topics from the DeuS project and hosted by the various DeuS partners.

All creative and cultural professionals can actively participate in the radio shows and contribute to debates and topics with questions, or suggestions online. Tune in by going to!

You can follow along on our website www.deuscci.euFacebookTwitter and LinkedIn.

DeuS builds on the work of the Open Design School pilot initiative, a participatory and multidisciplinary  open design laboratory which was pivotal to the successful implementation of ECoC Matera 2019. The project is funded by Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union.

DeuS National Validation Workshops

The DeuS partners hosted a series of validation workshops in order to validate the training methodology.

DeuSComp Training and Toolkit

It’s here! The DeuSComp toolkit has landed and in all modesty, we’ll have to say – it’s pretty damn fantastic.
We’ve set up three pathways to engage with the learning experience and a whole bunch of high-quality assets and tools. We promise it will not disappoint. Go check it out

Living Labs – Peer-to-Peer Learning, Co-creation and What it Feels Like Not to Know the Outcome

All DeuS partners have gone through the experience of running a Living Lab based on the methodology developed by Open Design School in Matera. The key to a successful Living Lab is to be okay with that fact that you do not know the outcome beforehand.

This was embraced by all the partners who have collectively put together handbooks, videos and testimonials for you to browse through on our website

We advise you to stay tuned on both our website, social media and Radio DeuS to hear more about how partners will continue to use the methodology in the future!
