About This Project


Culture and Arts Entrepreneurship in Adult Education 


02.09.2019 – 02.09.2021


CREATION is a 24-month Erasmus+ strategic partnership project that aims to explore the theoretical roots, pedagogical approaches, and practical training in and for cultural entrepreneurship, targeting specifically underrepresented groups, being women who come from marginalised backgrounds (migrants, refugees and asylum seekers). In particular, it seeks to address the gap in the field of theory, pedagogy and practice on cultural entrepreneurship, in particular with regards to the training of women entrepreneurs from diverse backgrounds.


The project objectives are to:


– Promote positive role models of female entrepreneurs from diverse backgrounds
– Offer an option to integrate women into the labour force
– Increase economic independence through empowerment
–  Promote job creation and economic growth
– Promote equity and social inclusion
– Create more equal access to resources, skills and experience, opportunities, and business networks
– Improve access to mainstream business support mechanisms


The CREATION project will produce the following intellectual outputs to support its objectives:


O1 – A pedagogical framework for cultural entrepreneurship education

O2 – A toolkit of resources to build basic cultural entrepreneurial skills and competences

O3 – Multifunctional and Interactive Platform with Open Digital Badges Micro-credentials System

O4 – CREATION Blueprint Package

O5 – A train-the-trainer course for adult educators to enable them to harness the potential of cultural and arts entrepreneurship.
