This survey is part of research conducted within ‘DigiKommune’ a transnational project co-funded by the European Commission within the Erasmus+ programme. The project supports women who own a creative business, who have been affected by Covid-19 and have a need to promote their business to the online community (a term we call virtualisation).
Inova Consultancy UK is coordinating this project with L’Albero associzione from Italy, CESIE from Italy, Inova Aspire from the Netherlands and ARTeria from Poland.
The project sets out to develop the digital and soft skills of female artists and creatives who wish to develop their businesses online to reach a wider potential audience.
You can find the survey here.
