The Creative Entrepreneurs Project looks at how to develop an online system to directly help the creative sector in Rural Ireland generate employment and sustainability thereby creating jobs within the rural community.
Developing a sustainable Creatives Entrepreneurship ecosystem will help young people from disadvantaged or poorer parts of the society to choose creative careers without the fear that they won’t be able to make their living from it. Currently the majority of students in Art Academies come from the most privileged social groups.
Working in the Creative sector but you don’t have the time or resources to focus on the business side of your practice. This is exactly what we can do for you, we can give you the tools and information to implement in your business or we can do the implementation with you.
CFCP are an organisation run by Creatives for Creatives, who focus on the unique set of Professional and Entrepreneurial Skills needed by creatives of all genres. We will get you to where you want to be, easily, clearly and efficiently.
Why not start the journey with us by coming to our Creative Entrepreneurs 4 day Bootcamp on 20 – 23 October 2016 in Ashford, Co. Wicklow, Ireland, The Early Bird Price of €250 lasts until 10 October after which it goes to €350.
It seems that since the formation of the new government all the talk within the Arts sector has been around the fact that Ireland doesn’t have a separate Minister or department for the Arts. Now whilst I totally agree with this stance we seem to be spending an inordinate amount of time on talking about it and wishing for change without actually doing or showing how life can be different by using what we already have. As in getting on with things and making a better case by talking “their” language.
Why it is critical to get the rural economy moving again, Changing Creatives Lives in Rural Communities
Sustainable Development in Rural Areas –
My passion is particularly aimed at rural communities in Ireland to stimulate their economic and social growth through creation of new jobs in creative micro-SMEs and SMEs.
Stimulating the Creative Sector to apply sustainable business practices will also stimulate traditional businesses to expand their offerings towards the Creative Sector and further advance the economy.
Arts & Culture drive economic and social development, as well as innovation and cohesion. The cultural and creative sector is a growing sector, developing at a higher pace than the rest of the economy. The same applies to employment. Indeed, this sector provides many different and often highly skilled possibilities, and again the sector’s growth in terms of jobs out-performs the rest of the economy. It also drives many other sectors of the European economy, and in particular innovation and ICT sectors.
