On 14 May 2021, the ATRIUM General Assembly was held online due to the COVID-19 restrictions.
On 2-13 April 2021, ATRIUM participates in the second FAB Routes Workshop aimed at exchanging best practices among Cultural Routes. The meeting focused on how to stimulate exchange among Cultural Routes (CRs) and better include CRs in the culture and touristic ecosystem. The CRs had the opportunity to exchange best practices on networking strategies and, through a series of teamwork activities, the participants engaged in an open discussion on how to collaborate and create new partnerships. This activity can be considered the second step in the design of the Fab Routes Model Strategy, a model that wants to enable CRs to better integrate in the existing cultural and tourism service systems.
