Their common goal is to pool regional and European partnerships so as to promote innovative projects of cultural and creative industries. One of the first measures of N.I.C.E. was the establishment of the European Innovation Award for Culture, the N.I.C.E. Award

Adolf Winkelmann's film installation "Flying Pictures" lights up the U-tower: the picture clock on the roof top runs daily from 6:00 in the morning to midnight. Every day has its own motif. In the time from midnight to 6:00 in the morning the picture clock shows the real time. The installation can be seen not only in Dortmund, but throughout the world via webcam.  >> MORE

ECBN Summit 2015

On 11th May the European Creative Industries Summit 2015 on the topic of “The Cultural Creative Entrepreneur in the 21st century “ is taking place in Brussels. Expectations on strengthening cultural and creative enterprises, growth, jobs and also urban development and social harmony are growing from year to year - driven moreover by the Agenda Europe 2020. But how can the enterprises of the creative economy deal with this, when their framework conditions are actually changing for the worse – whether due to the financial crisis, austerity or the digital revolution? The European Creative Business Network (ECBN), chaired by Bernd Fesel, is welcoming around 100 participants to the conference, to discuss the possibilities of European policy supporting the cultural and creative economy in this situation. The EU Commissioner for Education, Culture, Youth and Sport, Mr Tibor Navracsics, is speaking on this at the opening; the keynote speech “Cultural Creative Industries: Taking Lead in Digital Change in Society, Economy and Culture" will be held by Prof. Dieter Gorny, Managing Director of ecce GmbH. This will be followed by three panel discussions about European policy in the areas of the economy, research and culture.

Ecce for the city of Essen at the conclusion of CreativeSPIN

It’s known to be difficult for cities to promote the cross-fertilization of creative economy and urbanity. The URBACT support programme of the European Union focuses on this and encourages the exchange of know-how within Europe to better cope with similar or same tasks. Learning from one another can help to avoid mistakes. Partners from nine nations – among these the city of Essen – have worked together for almost three years, led by the city of Birmingham, to work out so-called local action plans for the creative economy which especially develop innovation effects in the urban space. Ecce initiated the city of Essen’s participation in the CreativeSPIN project, then provided professional support and, ultimately, took part in the final event in April with Bernd Fesel. In doing so ecce was able to agree further cooperation with partners in Birmingham for 2016 which still continues after the end of the project.

Spotlight - Creative Milieus in Europe

Our newest publication “Spotlight” leads you 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. In this way Spotlight hopes to help others find strategies and implement activities for their own urban development. It also appears as a manual for starting an in-depth research individually. In doing so, ecce aims to assist in making the effects and successes of creative milieus more provable and practically oriented, hoping that this will strengthen the willingness of policy makers to invest in them in order to promote creativity, new cultures and innovative arts in the same way they invest in economic and urban growth.
