Despite the inconvenient flow of daily life, creatives remained creative and many hopeful initiatives arose out of this situation. Combined with the technological possibilities and the conducive nature of the sector, the spread of information has both benefited but also prevented a more complete and cohesive action.
Creatives Unite is a platform that aims to balance this gap by gathering all the information circulating on the web regarding creative opportunities coming from and referring to the CCIs, by directing to the relevant websites of the respective networks, organisations and initiatives and by giving the opportunity to co-create and share solutions.
Rather than overlapping with the existing initiatives in the sector, the platform strives to provide a common point of access for information on cultural and creative initiatives in response to the crisis, and directing to the relevant websites of the respective networks, organizations and initiatives. The platform offers curated space to co-create and upload contributions towards finding solutions together.
User are also able to contribute by uploading any relevant initiatives, events, surveys and funding opportunities.
The project Creative FLIP helps to run and curate the Platform. Creative FLIP is a pilot project of the European Parliament, managed by the European Commission. This Pilot Project is implemented by the Goethe Institut in cooperation with the European Creative Hubs Network and several partners.
"Culture includes not only culture and arts, but also the way of life and system of values. In this sense culture becomes the major power for intellectual renewal and human perfection." (European Council Report on European Cultural Policy)
