WELCOME TO THE CREATIVE EDGE PROJECT
‘A VIEW FROM THE EDGE GIVES THE BEST PERSPECTIVE’
The main objective of the Creative Edge project is to increase the active participation of local creative organisations and businesses in global markets and equally in their ability to attract and utilise local emerging creative talent in these markets. This project is sponsored by the Northern Periphery Programme.
CREATIVE EDGE addresses three pillars of the creative economy: PEOPLE, PRODUCTION and PLACE.
CREATIVE PEOPLE generate and develop ideas that evolve into CREATIVE PRODUCTION of creative goods and services. The interaction of creatives in CREATIVE PLACES enhances creativity and innovation.
Supports are provided through Creative Edge under each of the three pillars and these supports will enable commercialisation and thus sustainability of the creative economy. More info
The project involves five partners, two in Ireland (the Whitaker Institute at National University of Ireland, Galway and the Western Development Commission), one in Northern Ireland (Craigavon Borough Council, member of South East Economic Development) one in Finland (Kemi-Tornio University of Applied Sciences) and one in Sweden (Film i Vasterbotten).
