COVID19 decimated the European creative economy and it needs all the help it can get to build stronger and more resiliently. Creative industries add hundreds of millions of euros to the European economies but in recent years hundreds of creative individuals and creative collectives have lost out on ways to promote and sell their work.
At the same time, at European Universities the sudden shift to online and distance learning has led to their so-called “third mission” being lost. Creative Communities First was designed in response to these two issues. Its main aim is to support HEI educators to digitally transform their teaching methods to rejuvenate the small, local, creative communities in the process.
THE GUIDE TO THE SUSTAINABLE AND REGENERATIVE DEVELOPMENT OF EU CREATIVE ECONOMIES AND COMMUNITIES POST COVID19 provides higher educators with up-to-date knowledge on the impact of the COVID19 crisis on creative economies and a set of transferable solutions and project ideas they can implement with their students to help sustainably develop and regenerate creative communities post-crisis.
