Publication: Enabling Crossovers: Good Practices in the Creative Industries in Asia and Europe

Enabling Crossovers: Good Practices in the Creative Industries in Asia and Europe is a new publication by the Asia-Europe Foundation. It presents 36 good practices within four areas: creative skills, creative entrepreneurs, creative cities: sustainability, and creative cities: quality of life.

In an essay by Ada Wong ‘Creative Skills for a Creative Economy’, she argues that: “Creative skills are not only for creative practitioners. Everyone needs skills in thinking and creativity to succeed in the creative and sustainable economy of the twenty-first century. Creative skills should be a young person’s core competence and basic literacy.” However, in her opinion the concept of ‘creative skills’ is often seen as artistic proficiency within education systems and does not include critical thinking and problem-solving ability. She also proposes recommendations in areas related to creative skills.

 

The Creative Skills features a variety of projects, programmes and organisations across Europe and Asia. Among these, two ICEnet partners are presented: Creativity, Culture and Education (CCE), UK, and the Artists in Creative Education – Pakistan/UK project co-organised by them, as well as the Cultural Rucksack, Norway.
