The project aims to create an innovative crowdfunding e-learning academy for cultural and creative industries (CCIs) organizations and professionals through an international strategic partnership. Its main objectives are:
- Developing skills and knowledge in crowdfunding and self-financing for the long-term sustainability of CCIs, promoting employment in the cultural and creative sector.
- Enhancing the capacities of CCIs operators, professionals, and entrepreneurs in digital financing opportunities, involving local communities, supporters of innovative ideas, and cultural institutions at the local and national levels.
- Encouraging cultural development strategies and interactive training activities in the involved countries and in the European context, promoting sustainable CCIs innovation and self-empowerment processes through a free e-learning crowdfunding academy.
The project will empower CCIs operators and professionals through a “Training for Trainers Programme,” the “Crowdfunding for Culture Digital Academy,” and the development of “Crowdfunding Campaigns.” It will focus on raising awareness of fundraising, self-financing techniques, and crowdfunding methodologies, leveraging the community of potential supporters and digital platforms to transform social capital into financial capital.
