How the cycle will be implemented?
Activities will be organised each month (with exception of holidays periods) and will alternate, conferences, debates, exchanges and meetings. The topics proposed are:
In the framework of the cycle Global Exchange of Craft Makers, a first sessionÂ on “Are crafts a promising creative sector for development? Sharing thoughts and experiences”Â will be organised next 24 May from 17h to 18h30 connecting cities of Ă‰vora, Lisbon, and Rio de Janeiro.Â
During this session, special speakers and participants will analyse the opportunities and challenges this sector presents in each of the participating countries for the development of their societies. Different development dimensions, cultural, education, economic and social, will be addressed during the session, which will serve as introductory session for the whole cycle.
â€śCreative industries are those industries that have their origin in individual creativity, skill, and talent, and have potential for job creation through the generation and exploitation of ideas or imagination. Using this broad definition, creative industries range from advertising and social media to the likes of agribusiness, design, and handicrafts. Creative industries provide a platform to support the sustained empowerment of women. In communities across the world, rich cultural value and traditional designs have been protected and nurtured by women through creative industries.â€ť
The rise of the creative industries presents significant opportunities for transforming womenÂ´s energy into new ideas, organisation and a future vision for societies. The sessions will address some of the critical policy approaches that are required to promote creative entrepreneurship among women and young women.
This session will allow us to discuss about opportunities and innovative methods to fundraise our projects on social entrepreneurship. In this framework, can be cooperation, barter, exchanges of services, partnerships, a source for fundraising our ideas? and if yes, how best?
Among many other participants, special speakers will include:
After two amazing sessions, the first one introducing the existing potential link between creative and social entrepreneurship, the second one analysing hub managers and entrepreneurs competences and challenges; a third session which will take place next Tuesday 10 November, will focus on fundraising and partnerships. With the aim to conclude the cycle by sharing inspiring iniciatives we will organise a fourth session smart practices on social entrepreneurship on creative sectors.
As we discussed last WTuesday 27 October, social entrepreneurs are dream makers who share knowledge with the community in order to build a better future together. ItÂ´s a persistent non-conformist who search through creativity and innovation succesful solutions for social change.
In the round-table we will firstly introduce the different organisation models we can find in the social and creative entrepreneurship landscape. Hence, our invitees will present their initiatives in detail and share with us the challenges they face and how they support successful projects.
Our wonderful participants, representing different types of organisations such as ADDICT, Fermenta NGO, Portuguese Entrepreneurs, NVO Front and SEDA (Regional Development Agency of SandĹľak) shared their views and experiences about the development of creative and social entrepreneurship in Portugal and Serbia. Different scenarios but same needs: inspiration, competences, sustainability, fundraising and networking opportunities. Topics that will be raised in the following sessions of this cycle.
For this purpose, the second session of this cycle will be focused on the competences and abilities the entrepreneurs need to ensure in order to provide a successful implementation of their ideas. For sure weÂ´ll discuss a lot about the challenges and the difficulties entrepreneurs and hub managers face everyday but also weÂ´ll share innovative ideas, creative solutions, a lot of hope and great inspiration for them.
