Role in CUPIDO
Rottneros wants to learn from the international partnership how to renew in order to attract and inspire (younger) vistors, how to use modern techniques and how to extend the season.The offer is to turn the park into a test bed for new ideas that in a joint process will grow. Local culture institutions already like to cooperate to create a steady culture cluster in which local institutions work. A longer season for example gives a more stable employment possibilities for local culture workers.
