Collapse of Cultural & Creative Industry
The spread of Coronavirus had had a negative economic impact on the cultural and creative industries. The entire sector seems to be close to collapse as all festivals, fairs and concerts have been cancelled, clubs and theatres were forced to close. Not only organisers are affected, but also agencies and numerous freelancers in performing arts, film and music. Cultural and creative sectors are among the most affected by the current crisis, with jobs at risk ranging from 0.8 to 5.5% of employment.
In this environment, CREAction 4 EU aims to give its contribution in facing the current COVID-19 situation by fostering the entrepreneurial attitude and by generating new opportunities among young people in order to both face unemployment and support the Creative Industry field.
The project main target groups include young people aged 13-30 years old and youth workers, youth organizations, NGOs, cultural organizations, and social cultural enterprises, having the goal of providing young people with knowledge and insights to develop creative outcomes and manage them.
