CCS professionals and aspiring art entrepreneurs are in need to acquire a set of entrepreneurial and digital competences in an interactive and engaging way, in order to modify the way creative products, cultural goods and events are created, managed, disseminated and consumed during and after Covid-19 crisis.
DiGiPORT’s target groups fall under the following two main categories:
1) Adult trainers and adult education organizations dealing with the support and training of CCS professionals and artists and eager to acquire new and innovative tools along with the necessary knowledge to support entrepreneurial and digital skills development locally and at European level.
2) Unemployed and/or self-employed CCS professionals and aspiring (art) entrepreneurs who are exposed to the risk of exclusion due to the Covid-19 crisis and other social, economic or geographical obstacles.
The DiGiPORT project, recognizing the importance of CCS for the European and national economies and the significant challenges these sectors are facing due to the current Covid- 19 crisis along with the major opportunities emerging for the sector through the exploitation of state-of-the-art technologies and digitization, will aim to equip CCS professionals and artists with the necessary digital and entrepreneurial skills that will allow them to ensure their sustainability and, also, to enhance their resilience towards similar challenges and crises.
Moving onwards from the competences’ development, the DiGiPORT project aims to develop and establish a panEuropean online platform that will allow CCS professionals and artists to create their own digital pop-up shops, through which they will be able to promote and disseminate their work and reach out to their target groups in times when venue based and physical activities are impossible to be organized and implemented.
