SUCCESSFUL BUSINESSWOMEN, above all originating from migrant communities, are especially vital contributors to social inclusion in diversified European communities. CREATION supports etnic minority women in building entrepreneurial skills and fostering integration through focusing especially on cultural and arts entrepreneurship. A research-based FRAMEWORK will support women to map out innovative cultural entrepreneurship skills. Interactive TRAINING RESOURCES will support EDUCATORS and MIGRANT WORKERS in strengthening crucial entrepreneurial skills of female entrepreneurs. Intersectoral BLUEPRINT PACKAGE will propose a roadmap to design, implement and evluate cultural and arts entrepreneurship. TRAINING for EDUCATORS will prepare them for working with non-traditional, community-based learning resources.
The intention through the CREATION project is to explore the theoretical roots, pedagogical approaches, and practical training in, and for cultural entrepreneurship!
At the heart of different lifelong learning programmes across Europe, the discussion of the creative economies, their characteristics and the need for adult training to create a future workforce that possesses creative, cultural or artistic skills, is always vivid. Within the context of this discussion, the gradual shift from an almost exclusive focus on management to the potential of cultural entrepreneurship, has seen an explosion in interest. CREATION responds to these emerging needs by offering pedagogical approach and a practical training based in the environment of creative industries. CREATION is targeting specifically underrepresented groups, being women who come from marginalised backgrounds (migrants, refugees and asylum seekers). Additionally, CREATION is addressing adult educators and migrant support workers, being those who directly support migrant women. The CREATION project aims to allow for more opportunities for migrant women to broaden their opportunities, create better prospects for independent work and integration in their host communities.
