Cultural Heritage Lab - will focus on Audience Development and will raise issues related to a deeper understanding of current and potential recipients. During the Lab, innovative approaches will be presented, such as: data-based decision making, mixed methods and creative techniques as well as user-centered constructions.

This year, some 30 people from V4, Eastern Partnership and Central Europe will take part in the school's program. According to the organizers, priority is given to startup founders, initiators of competitive business, and people settled in heritage sites, working with tangible and intangible heritage, as the main material of their professional activities.

During 10 days of lectures, workshops, training and study visits participants will work (in groups and individually) on their short presentations to be held on the final day, during the new closure format "Visegrad Tedx Talks". The new, changed formula of the school will be carried out in compliance with all sanitary regulations and government ordinances.
