CREACT4MED is proud to announce the publication of two country reports mapping the key features of the Cultural and Creative Industries (CCI) in Tunisia and Egypt.
Mapping the current landscape of the CCI in the target countries of the CREACT4MED project is a key pillar of its activities. This involves desk research, consultation workshops with key CCI stakeholders in each country, and input from the CREACT4MED Technical Expert Group (TEG), which is a multi-disciplinary group of renowned regional and local experts including project partners, external participants, and observers. Five TEG meetings were held between 18 November 2020 and 25 February 2021, and five CCI Stakeholder Workshops between 22 March 2021 and 10 June 2021.
The outputs of this research exercise will be eight country reports on the salient features of the CCI landscape in each of the eight target countries in the EU Southern Neighborhood. The reports give a brief overview of the economic situation of the country and the salient features of its existing CCI and entrepreneurial ecosystems. National and international initiatives impacting CCIs are identified, as well as key actors including government, private sector, associations and NGOs, and academia. Finally, the reports discuss challenges and opportunities with the CCI sector, and give a series of policy recommendations.
The reports for Tunisia and Egypt are now available:
- Cultural & Creative Industries in Tunisia: Salient Features
- Cultural & Creative Industries in Egypt: Salient Features
