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

"Voices of Culture" brainstorming session in Berlin

The european centre for creative economy (ecce) is a key partner of the highly regarded “Voices of Culture” initiative – and so ecce attended a “Voices of Culture” brainstorming session held in Berlin recently. The main topic of discussion was what the European Union can do to support the future of the cultural and creative industries. At the invitation of the Directorate-General for Education and Culture, around 30 experts from across Europe attended an energetic, forthright discussion at Berlin University of the Arts on 24 and 25 February. “Voices of Culture” is a structured dialogue under the auspices of the European Commission that aims to provide the cultural and creative industries with creative input to support growth, jobs and innovation. A number of the key points that were discussed in Berlin have been the topic of intense, ongoing discussion ever since the European Commission’s initial report on the economy of culture was published in 2006. They include the status of art in relation to society and the economy on the one hand and autonomy and self-expression on the other. Bernd Fesel, senior advisor at ecce in Dortmund, represented us at the brainstorming session.

To give a brief summary of what was discussed: the session covered fundamental issues like the definition of “cultural entrepreneurs”, the evaluation of cultural values in economic terms and the evaluation of economic trends in cultural ones (big data). Four “World Cafe” tables provided the perfect platform for discussing policies and funding aimed at supporting the cultural and creative industries.

One thing quickly became clear: the heterogeneous nature of the creative economy represents both an opportunity and an obstacle when it comes to introducing specific policies at a European level. Various key issues look set to remain on the agenda for the time being: for example, whose interests are served by certain decisions? Public institutions, creative businesses la Bertelsmann or the recently founded Musikclub, or co-working spaces? Overall, the Berlin brainstorming session managed to find holistic solutions for all the issues discussed. “Voices of Culture” will present its recommendations to the EU Commission in April.

NEW STUDY ON CULTURAL AND CREATIVE spillovers in europe

The European research partnership on cultural and creative spillover effects in Europe,
initiated by the european centre for creative economy (ecce) in 2014, takes its collaboration forward by launching a call to be involved in a secondary research stage: „Testing innovative methods to evaluate cultural and creative spillovers in Europe“.

The purpose of the upcoming project is to document methods used to demonstrate causality in spillover effects in field research. The research aims to test hypotheses around the innovative evaluation methods of cultural and creative spillovers in case studies across Europe. Thus, we are soliciting individual or a consortium bid(s) from parties interested in completing case studies that will document, evaluate and make recommendations based on arts, cultural and creative activity/projects/developments where cultural and creative spillover effects have been evaluated or might be evaluated using and testing innovative methods. The output will be a report commenting on and delivering recommendations on the efficacy of methodological approaches used in different settings to measure spillover effects and on future methodological approaches to investigating spillover effects. Deadline for receipt of tender proposals is 8th April 2016.
The complete research brief can be found HERE

Background: With the publishing of its first report, authored by Tom Fleming Creative Consultancy (UK), in October 2015 the research partnership has galvanised the debate about how to find a better way to comprehend spillover effects of the arts, culture and the creative industries and has experienced an overwhelming response on international level.
