Home / Adult / Entrepreneurial motivation and empowerment resources for entrepreneurs in the creative sector

During the past months, the 6 partners of the Creative Talent Factory project developed a set of open educational resources for aspiring entrepreneurs in the creative sector. Through this set of OERs, the CTF project aims at providing aspiring or new entrepreneurs in the creative sector with attractive training materials for self-study, to deepen their understanding of the creative sector and have the tools, the motivation and the inspiration necessary to prosper within the sector.

The set of OERs “Creative Entrepreneurial motivation and empowerment” for aspiring entrepreneurs in the creative sector, is composed of:

  • Interactive readings “Why the development of creative business is important to me?”
  • Collection of video success stories
  • E-book of the testimonial success stories

The interactive readings are short texts with useful external links, that revolve around the question “Why development of creative business is important to me?”. Readers will have the chance to deepen their understanding of art business and the potential ways in which they could join it.

The readings consist of the following core topics:

  • The description and statistics of employment in the creative sector;
  • The role of individual creativity and talent in generating considerable economic wealth;
  • How the creative industries are capable of fighting unemployment and creating new jobs;
  • Presentation of the “Creative Europe” initiative.

The testimonial stories collect successful stories from creative entrepreneurs from 4 sectors: crafts, fashion, music and visual arts. A collection of first-hand experiences from an additional team of entrepreneurs thatmade it in art business which provide a deep understanding of their methods, motivations and successful practices. The participants derive from various artistic fields and all 6 countriesof the Creative Talent Factory team.

The video success stories are a series of documentary style videos where established names of the art industry recount their entrepreneurial experiences and reveal the actions that led them to where they are today. These personalities come from a range of artistic fields and from all 6 countries that participate in Creative Talent Factory project (Lithuania, Italy, Serbia, Greece, Portugal and Slovenia).

What’s next?

In the next months, the project partners will release the self-assessment tool to help the aspiring entrepreneurs assess the competences and skills of creative entrepreneurs and develop the Creative Talent Factory E- training programme to provide innovative easy-to-learn pathway for upskilling the creative entrepreneurial competences needed to set up or improve a creative business.
