Future Days Adriano

The project

With the “Future Days for the Adriano Community Center” we are building the governance of a single space, which integrates the functions of nursing home and community hub.
Thanks to the activation of an innovative governance model, where services and functions are co-designed with experienced and quality partners, the Adriano Community Center becomes a place of aggregation and sociality, artistic and cultural production, and a place to refresh the body and mind.
A space for care and also for culture.

Future Days are promoted by Proges as part of Lacittàintorno, a programme by Fondazione Cariplo.

The challenge

How can we build an innovative governance model that makes the cultural offer of the Adriano Community Center participatory and sustainable?
How to identify the most suitable partners to co-design an inclusive and innovative schedule of activities and initiatives with the community hub?

The strategy

We launched an open call to identify the best partners with whom to co-design the schedule of activities and services of the Adriano Community Center.
Together with the selected companies, we have progressively co-designed the schedule of activities and the new governance.

The process

The Call for Partner, on the theme “Culture as a care. Care as culture”, saw the participation of local actors and entrepreneurial organizations, profit and non-profit, in the three areas of training, cultural welfare and innovative catering.
During the co-design workshops with the selected partners, we defined collaboration methods between the participating organizations and established the calendar of activities to be carried out in the Adriano Community Center.
During a second phase of the process, the organizations concerned had the opportunity to have a recognized role in the governance of the Adriano Community Center.

The impact

With “Future Days”, we define a new governance model for the Adriano Community Center, with which to face the challenges of the next decade on the issues of cultural welfare and innovation in care services.
With the Call for Partner on the theme “Care as culture. Culture as care”, the Adriano Community Center synthesizes the two areas of care and culture. It innovates services, produces social impact and change and places people’s well-being at the center.
