The new Social&Creative policy brief is online!
Cultural and creative sectors are important for ensuring the continued development of societies and are at the heart of the creative economy. Coronavirus crisis has played a critical role for cultural and creative sectors which have seen a sudden loss of revenue. Professionals working in the sector as freelancers as well as small and micro firms have been among those most affected.
Nevertheless, new interesting opportunities are also emerging for the these sectors, related to the quick escalation of digital access, the crucial role of culture in promoting social cohesion and psychological wellbeing, in achieving the goals for the United Nations Agenda 2030 and contributing to the European Green Deal.
In fact, today, more than ever, the importance of culture and creativity for society is clear. Cultural aspects, including active participation in cultural life, the development of individual and collective cultural freedoms, the protection of tangible and intangible cultural heritage, and the protection and promotion of various cultural expressions, are central components in human development. They can also have positive effects in other areas of sustainable development.
