SUCCESSFUL BUSINESSWOMEN, especially those originating from migrant communities, are vital contributors to social inclusion in diversified European communities. CREATION supports ethnic minority women by building their entrepreneurial skills and fostering integration through focusing especially on cultural and arts entrepreneurship. A research-based FRAMEWORK has been developed to support women to map out innovative cultural entrepreneurship skills. Interactive TRAINING RESOURCES have been designed and piloted to support EDUCATORS and MIGRANT WORKERS in strengthening crucial entrepreneurial skills of female entrepreneurs. TRAINING for EDUCATORS has also been developed to support them to work with non-traditional, community-based learning resources.
The intention through the CREATION project has been 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 increase in interest. CREATION responds to these emerging needs by offering pedagogical approaches and a practical training based in the environment of creative industries. CREATION specifically targets underrepresented groups, including women who come from marginalised backgrounds (migrants, refugees and asylum seekers). Additionally, CREATION addresses adult educators and migrant support workers, as the key intermediaries who directly support migrant women. The CREATION project allows for more opportunities for migrant women to broaden their opportunities, create better prospects for independent work and integration in their host communities.
