CALL for Creative Curious Travellers 2018 - cover photo - post

PALERMO Here are the 60 guests selected through the CALL for Creative Curious Travellers 2018” that has received 412 submissions from all around the World! The #CCTravellers2018 will spend some days in Palermo – Italian Capital of Culture 2018 – from 14th June to 24th July, to explore the city and find their story… to tell and share on our web guidezine!

In this guest LIST, below, there is a short introduction about everyone but – if you are curious – you can find out many beautiful things about the creativity of these writers, photographers, filmmakers, illustrators, artists from all around the World, just clicking on their websites, blogs or social media. 😉


Welcome Home! & More…


IMPORTANT MESSAGE FOR THE CITY! According to their passions and cultural interests, we’ll be super happy to put our special guests in touch with creative curious locals and cultural independent organisations. So, if you are based in Palermo and would like to meet and create something together with one or more #CCTravellers2018, please contact the CCTeam [email: hello@cct-seecity.com | tel. +39 366 9777735]. Thank you!


412 submissions!

First of all, we are very happy and truly thankful for every single submission, it was so difficult for us and the LOCAL JURY – composed by four independent cultural organisations based in Palermo: CLAC + @Igers.Palermo + MINIMUM + PUSH. – to make this selection!

Our CALL for Creative Curious Travellers 2018 has received 412 submissions from all around the World, all interesting and passionate. For technical limits, it was supposed to host maximum 40 / 50 people. We have tried to do our best to guarantee the widest diversity in storytelling formats, creativity and cultural backgrounds. And also we have tried to do our best to host as much people as possibile: in the end we’ll manage to welcome 60 #CCTravellers2018 from all around the World! For this, we must thank: MAD B&B, Bed & Book, A Casa di Amici, Stupor Mundi, Palazzo del Poeta.

We do wish to keep in touch with all the candidates anyway – there will be other calls! – and please note this: our community is always OPEN. // THANK YOU everyone from the bottom of our heart! 


60 #CCTravellers2018!

This LIST is in ALPHABETICAL ORDER (considering the first name of the people who submitted the application for him/herself or for his/her own team). If you are in the list, you can start sharing the good news and your travel experience in Palermo (before/during/after) with (in particular) these HASHTAGS: #CCTravellers2018, #Palermo2018, #IgersPalermo, #CCTravellers, #SeeCity. Also, we suggest you to always TAG @CCTseecity + all the Partners involved and all the Places that will welcome you: this way for all of us will be easier to interact with you, like and share… BE CURIOUS, CREATIVE & SOCIAL! 😉 

Note: in these days, we’ll email you info and details about your stay in Palermo and then we’ll get in touch again before your arrival. For any question or doubt, do not hesitate to contact the CCTeam.


#CCTravellers is an idea by CCT-SeeCity. A co-storytelling project for the promotion of Creativity, Culture, Territory. An opportunity for every creative curious traveller but also (and especially) for the city involved. An editorial format based on the idea of a conscious and sustainable, slow and widespread tourism, in contact with the most authentic local life. 

The #CCTravellers2018 project for the City of Palermo is our third edition (after Prato 2016 and Pistoia 2017).


We can’t wait to welcome you all! See you soon in Palermo, #CCTravellers2018! :) #SeeCity & Love, CCTeam
