Key facts from Culture Workshop on Cultural and Creative Industries in the Baltic Sea Region
Last Tuesday, our colleague Magda Małachowska from Akademia Sztuki w Szczecinie took part in the 12th PA Culture Strategic Project Development Workshop on Cultural and Creative Industries in the Baltic Sea Region.
The workshop was moderated by Mika Klein and was devoted to the condition of creative sectors in the Baltic Sea Region in the corona crisis. The event was held online and was co-organized by Stowarzyszenie Media Dizajn and entertained by Cafe Jazz Trio.
It became very obvious that self-employed in the CCI sectors were hardly hit by the pandemic causing their economic existence severely endangered. This negative effect was noticeable in the turnover decline of more than 70% across 2020 and 2021.
To reduce the negative impact of the corona crisis in CCI some adaptations and innovations were introduced:
– new funds from public entities on the national level,
– stay-at-home residences and scholarships,
– bureaucratic innovation,
– more online activities and events.
In the current situation, the most efficient and expected countermeasures for CCI would be to:
– receive financial support for entrepreneur wages,
– exchange with other cultural and creative workers
– training opportunities.
