Artists & Creatives Community Covid-19 Resource Platform

A platform by the cultural & creative sectors for the cultural & creative sectors

We want to gather in one place all initiatives/ information related to the cultural and creative sectors in the EU in response to the COVID crisis

We are facing a serious health crisis that not only has cost the livelihood of millions, but also has a severe impact on the sustainability of many sectors of the economy, and especially the Cultural and Creative Industries all around Europe.

Despite the inconvenient flow of daily life, creatives remained creative and many hopeful initiatives arose out of this situation. Combined with the technological possibilities and the conducive nature of the sector, the spread of information has both benefited but also prevented a more complete and cohesive action.

Following a virtual meeting of EU Ministers of Culture held on 8 April 2020 regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, Commissioner Gabriel proposed the launching of a platform for the cultural sector to share information and good practices between themselves. This is how Creatives Unite was born.

Creatives Unite is a platform that aims to balance this gap by gathering all the information circulating on the web regarding creative opportunities coming from and referring to the CCIs, by directing to the relevant websites of the respective networks, organisations and initiatives and by giving the opportunity to co-create and share solutions.

It is operated by the European Creative Hubs Network and the Goethe-Institut as part of Creative FLIP
