Is it possible to turn personal artistic vibes into social development processes?

What role can the creative sector assume in the workforce?

Join us on 14th March 2018 for the final conference of the ArtS project: it will be held in Rome at Fondazione Exclusiva (FEX).

Melting Pro and Fondazione Exclusiva created the event to reflect on:

  • the importance of creative skills for the development of the companies in the sector,
  • the competitiveness of the territories,
  • the revival of employment,
  • the empowerment of young people,
  • the building of open and inclusive communities.

ArtS. Skills for the creative economy is the inspiration for the event, a project promoted with the support of the European Commission within the Erasmus Plus program – Sector Skills Alliance, through which 13 organizations from Greece, Spain and Italy investigated the complex system of training in the panorama the of cultural and creative industries.

We will discuss the value of creativity as a key to understanding and constructing new scenarios, capable of transforming a path of individual growth into a broader process of social development.

The European perspective is the event benefit. European and international experiences cannot be ignored if we want to innovate national and local systems.

The programme includes moments of reflection through the telling of stories and moments of experimentation, that will actively involve young creative people.
