What? CIP equips cultural professionals with competences related to Innovation and Entrepreneurship, such as Design Thinking.
Why? Cultural workers are experts in their field, but sometimes they lack the entrepreneurial skills and competences to start their own businesses. Or they are already self-employed and then lack ideas on how to further develop their business or open it up to other target groups.
Who? CIP targets all kinds of cultural professionals, may as storytellers, artists, architects, …, as well as adult educators who are interested in culture.
How? In the next 2 years, CIP develops a course programme, a learning suite and an exhibition/marketplace concept. With all these tools and techniques cultural professionals and adult educators will be able to learn, network and present themselves (and their business ideas).
