Journalismus 2.0 – Miniworkshop zum Forum d’Avignon Ruhr

Digitisation has also changed journalism fundamentally – and it is still doing so. As in the Cultural and Creative Industries it is not only a question of remuneration or rights, but new distribution channels, tools and formats for journalistic content are continuing to develop in ever-faster cycles. In an information event of the team “Innovation der Deutschen Welle“, available only to journalists, the current tools of digital journalism are presented: Virtual Reality, Robot Journalism and Data Journalism at the interface between technology and content. The DW, in dialogue with the participating journalists, wishes to explain the technical and methodical means of future editorial work. The Forum d’Avigon Ruhr with its topic of “Culture is Digital – Digital is Culture” provides the most appropriate stage imaginable for this purpose –since this is where the challenges and chances of digitisation are understood as a cultural challenge to society – and also to the media – as a whole. Interested journalists should please apply by mail to: caravante(at)e-c-c-e.com

The C-HUB opened!

At last: the C-HUB in Mannheim is opened!

Already at the start of the C-HUB in July 2015 37 start-up companies from the creative industries with more than 80 employees are finding an attractive environment on about 3300m². The mix of experienced creative companies and new business start-ups makes this centre so fascinating, enabling a functioning exchange of experience and knowledge between the stakeholders. As well as traditional offices the C-HUB provides a coworking space with the “Dock 3 and rooms for conferences, meetings and training which can also be rented out externally. In addition the “C-LAB” serves as a workshop room for systemic design. Prof. Dieter Gorny, Federal Government Commissioner for Digital and Creative Economy, emphasized the unique characteristics of this location in his opening speech: "The Federal Government reports more than one million persons employed in the Cultural and Creative Industries. For the first time a business centre of the next generation only for this growing market is opened today with the C-HUB. The City of Mannheim is thereby one of the pioneers in Germany."

Strategy Meeting Amsterdam

At the end of July, all funding partners of the international research project "Preliminary Evidence of Spillover Effects in Europe" met in Amsterdam to discuss the results of the report on cultural creative spillovers in Europe and to prepare the work plan for the coming year. Thus they determined four working areas: in addition to the dissemination of research results and the associated endorsement of further research in the area of spillover effects of Culture and Creative Industries, a further focus is placed on the expansion and intensification of cooperation. Furthermore, a stronger support for research by the European Union is planned in the long term. And finally, selected recommendations should be picked up from the report, and the measurability methods of spillover effects should be tested in a case study and analysed further together with research institutes and cultural institutions from European Nations – this project suggests the topic for the next workshop in Essen in September, at which possible approaches and challenges will be discussed.

Call for Papers | to be debated SPILLOVER

In June the European Economic and Social Committee in Brussels held a hearing on cultural creative industries - including its material and immaterial spillover effects. While the topic "spillover" is in political discussions in Europe every day, its precise definition, understanding and evaluation is not debated accordingly, as Jonathan Vickery showed recently with his discourse of the concept of creative spillover effects. Today we therefore invite you to participate in a call for papers, statements or personal comments on “to be debated SPILLOVER”. What is your critic today? What are your demands or hopes for the future? We call on you to become a part of this great chapter and send us your input to tbd(at)e-c-c-e.com which will then be published online in autumn 2015. Deadline for entries is 31 August 2015.

Excite-Project

The EU’s ERASMUS Young Entrepreneurs Programme has already been in existence for around five years. It was ecce that encouraged Gelsenkirchen to apply as a local contact point with EXCITE. The Cultural Department of the City of Gelsenkirchen is the main contract partner here and the project leader is the Cultural Manager Christiana Henke. The aim of the programme is to network young self-employed persons within the EU with so-called Host Entrepreneurs and to bring them together in a one to six-month stay in a host company. The European Commission makes a contribution towards travel and accommodation costs. The programme is aimed at young entrepreneurs who have already set up their own companies or who can present a solid business plan. Altogether the project consortium intends to match 59 hosts with 59 entrepreneurs by the beginning of 2017. Cultural Manager Henke on the advantages of the programme: “Classical grants usually provide room and board, but unfortunately often no more. With this programme there is the additional benefit of an exchange of experience. To make young entrepreneurs fit for business.”
