ecce - european centre for creative economy

Research in the ruhr region and europe

ecce would like to closer examine the impulses of the Cultural and Creative Industries in politics, economy and society. The goal is to pick up, to develop further and to embed in practice current cultural and creative economic debates through project evaluation and international research collaborations.

EUROPEAN RESEARCH PARTNERSHIP ON CULTURAL AND CREATIVE SPILLOVERS

The European Research Partnership on Cultural and Creative Spillovers was launched in 2014, and aims to evaluate, in a holistic way, the effects of cultural and creative spillovers. It is especially concerned with closing the gaps in our methods of both research and evaluation. The Partnership is now commissioning innovative research and advocating for a new research agenda throughout the European Union. MORE

SHAPING THE FUTURE OF CULTURAL CREATIVE SPILLOVERS

With the first issue of the publication series “to be debated SPILLOVER”, ecce laid the foundation for a more scientific-based debate about the concept of cultural and creative spillovers. The article manifests the importance and significance of the phenomenon but simultaneously calls to attention the deficient research and public attention dedicated to the potential of spillovers. As the author Dr Jonathan Vickery, University of Warwick, emphasizes, the discourse is in need of a European framework in order to create a universal consensus about terminologies and methodologies which then make it possible to unleash fruitful and scientific debates on a pan-European level.

In response to this ecce released a Call for Papers in June 2015 and addressed persons and institutions from politics, research, society and the economy to take part in this discourse by submitting papers and comments on the subject of cultural and creative spillovers. We want to thank all participants for their contribution and are looking forward to receiving further comments and statements on the topic. Please find the submissions below:

1. Open Innovation: Innovations and identity do not fall from the sky, Antje Hinz (Silberfuchs-publishing house, Laboratory for societal creation of value, Germany)

Highlighting the importance of Cultural and Creative Industries for progress and quality in the wider economy, the article gives an overview of eight important aspects that demonstrate the need for further research and discussion in the field of cultural and creative spillovers. It emphasizes the role of methods and innovations in this sector which have developed to be an essential driver for societal developments and improvements.

2. How does a creative hub spills over society?, Factoría Cultural / Vivero de Industrias Creativas Matadero Madrid, Spain

Factoría Cultural focuses on the significance of creative hubs and their potential in the cultural and creative industries. However, in order to be able to function, creative places have to be structured and operate in a particular way. What is the role of creative hubs in a successful collaboration and which inner as well as outer network has to be fulfilled in order to guarantee positive spillovers for social agents?

3. The spillover effect S.T.A.R.T.S. with the emergence of cultural entrepreneurs, Laure Kaltenbach and Oliver Le Guay (Forum d’Avignon, France)

Laure Kaltenbach and Oliver Le Guay hightlight the necessity for a further linking – not only between culture and traditional industry, but furthermore between culture and other sectors, such as education and urban development – in order to generate positive spillovers for both sides. The paper analyses why therefore, at first instance, cultural entrepreneurs need to be staged, integrated and accepted on the same level as traditional entrepreneurs.

4. Discussing cross-borders of creative and traditional industries – spillover effects, Kristiina Urb (Creativity Lab OÜ, Estonia)

The paper discusses the paradigm surrounding spillover effects in creative industries by first giving an approach to the underlying definition of the term and in the following critically examining its potential and precise areas in which spillovers can come into effect. How can, for example, managerial activities in the sector of traditional industries benefit from those in the creative sector and what can be held against this position?

5. “Cups running over and the framework of transformation within creative spillovers: a contribution”, Tiago Prata (TILLT, Sweden)

The paper adds a new dimension to the debate by underlining the capability of transformation generated through the process of Artistic Interventions in Organisations. Facilitating the access and working conditions of professional artists in non-artistic organisations, a transformation regarding the traditional roles/goals on both sides can be unleashed and positive spillovers can unfold.

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

 

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.

SPOTLIGHT – CREATIVE MILIEUS IN EUROPE

 

Our latest publication “Spotlight” leads through creative milieus and their importance: in an overview of 300 creative milieus in Europe on the one hand, and in an in-depth description of six of them on the other. Spotlight hopes to help others to find strategies and implement activities for their own urban development. It also aimes to be a manual for starting an in-depth research individually. In doing so, Ecce wish to assist in making the effects and successes of creative milieus more plausible and practically oriented, hoping that this will strengthen the willingness of policy makers to invest in them. This happens in order to promote creativity, new cultures and innovative arts in the same way they invest in economic and urban growth.

TO BE DEBATED: SPILLOVER

 

Spillover effects due to culture: basis of innovations, political wishful thinking or the second career of a buzzword? One thing is certain: culture is increasingly being considered for its effect, while the topic “follow-up effects and kick-off functions“ is establishing itself as an integral part of EU programmes.  In the first issue of the publication series “to be debated“ ecce approaches the need for discussion and research on the topic of spillover and publishes an article by the cultural scientist Dr. Jonathan Vickery, University of Warwick, which was written following the masterclass “Strengthening Culture in Urban Developments in Europe“ within the CATALYSE programme at the beginning of 2014.
