Welcome to
Creatives Communities First


COVID19 has decimated the creative economy and it needs saving. Creative industries add hundreds of millions of euros to the European economies but in recent months due to restrictions and the social distancing paradigm hundreds of creative collectives have lost ways to promote and sell their work.

CCF’s main aim is to support HEI educators to digitally transform their teaching methods to rejuvenate the small, local, creative communities in the process.

now poses to communities and world leaders”

Ban Ki-Moon

COVID19 has decimated the creative economy and it needs saving. creative sectors are important in terms of their economic footprint and employment. They also spur innovation across the economy, as well as contribute to numerous other channels for positive social impact (well-being and health, education, inclusion, urban regeneration, etc.). They are among the hardest hit by the pandemic, with large cities often containing the greatest share of jobs at risk. The dynamics vary across sub-sectors, with venue-based activities and the related supply chains most affected. Policies to support firms and workers during the pandemic can be ill-adapted to the non-traditional business models and forms of employment in the sector.
