Interreg Project Slam video summary

Each year, as part of the European Week of Regions and Cities, Interact organises the Interreg Project Slam. The Slam, like a poetry slam, features original performances by projects, using storytelling techniques to share the benefits of their work with a European audience both at the week and through a digital campaign ahead of the week itself.

Interact facilitates and supports the projects, providing guidance and training to enable effective communication of the project and its results. The competition opens in spring each year, with finalists being identified and supported over the summer. The final performance is on a key stage at EU Regions week in Brussels.

In 2020, to celebrate the "Interreg 30 Years" anniversary, Interact is organising a Project Slam promoting innovative communication approaches to Interreg results. The themes for 2020 are Neighbour cohesion, Youth cooperation and Green connections.

This year we have gone one step further, and we are making the event even bigger and better. Over 150 projects have applied to take part in the Grand Final. After two selection rounds, six projects will take to the stage in Brussels, after receiving dedicated training in the months preceding the performance. Projects will use different storytelling techniques, either as a TED Talk show, or an acting piece. The winner of the "Interreg 30 years Project Slam" will be selected by the audience through a live electronic voting system.

 The six finalists that will perform in the Interreg 30 years Project Slam Grand Finale are as follows:

Session summary

In 2020, to celebrate Interreg's 30th anniversary, Interact organised a Project Slam promoting innovative communication approaches to Interreg results. This year we adapted to the current situation and the five finalist projects recorded their performances a few days in advance, as if they had been on stage.The five finalist projects used different storytelling techniques, either as a TED Talk or a play. 

At the end of the event, the audience was able to vote for their favourite performance through a live electronic voting system. The winner of the "Interreg 30 years Project Slam" was the project with the highest number of votes.
