InCUBator for the resilience of the culture
and crEative sectors

Europeans leave. According to the Eurobameter’s survey, 53% of respondents believe that Member States are close in terms of shared values. Having this in mind, culture can help bridge this divide, increasing cultural participation, and bring Europeans together to experience what connects them rather than what divides them. Under this perspective, CUBE project is linked with the formulation of educational activities, but in a way that it is modern and digital, aligned with the new challenges. Our project desires to help artists to acquire skills and competences, including digital competences and entrepreneurial spirit that reinforce creativity in education. This aspect will bring innovation and sustainability of cultural sectors and industries in an era when everything changes.

The objective of Cube project include:

O1 – Promoting the upskilling pathways of adult artists and low-skilled culture workers, through the adoption of a virtual training programme

O2 – Enhancing inclusion of all adult artists in their society, eliminating their risk of poverty and job loss

O3 – Encouraging new entrepreneurial ideas related to culture and artistic sector, revealing new methods of funding
