Creative Skills Europe

Skills for tomorrow

The evolution of the occupations and of the skills needs in the Audiovisual and Live Performance sectors are, like in many other sectors, not happening in a vacuum. They are strongly linked to broader transformations that need to be understood and addressed if skills development schemes are to be relevant in the long term, both to support the development of organisations and to secure individual careers.

From February 2017 till January 2019 Creative Skills Europe looked at some of the key trends affecting the creative and cultural sectors today, and identified which initiatives should be taken to offer relevant responses in terms of training opportunities.

The project organised four thematic workshops focusing on:
• The new business models and work organisation in the audiovisual and live performance sectors (27 – 28 June 2017, Sadler’s Wells Theatre, London, UK)
• Workforce development and career management (30 Nov – 1 Dec 2017, BRONKS Theatre for a Young Audience, Brussels, Belgium)
• The digital environment and the diversification of training tools (22 – 23 Mar 2018, Berlin University of the Arts, Germany)
• The role of social partners and of social dialogue for skills and career development (4  -5 June 2018, Centre National de la Danse, Paris, France)

A European Conference (5 February 2019, Goteborg, Sweden) presented the final results and outputs of the project.
