The project is focused on creative industries and gender equality. It will host a regional meeting and come up with new project ideas to empower women and reduce discrimination against women.
Gender inequality is a general problem across the Baltic Sea region and the Eastern Partnership countries. This project wants to investigate how creative industries and cultural entrepreneurs deal with this problem. One of the core ideas of the project is to highlight creative initiatives that can inspire others.
The project will conduct desk research on good practices from creative industries, addressing gender equality challenges. The outcome will be published in a report online. Another aim is to expand existing networks and build new collaborations between the participating organizations. Part of the project is to arrange a three-day meeting in Latvia for representatives from creative industries in the Baltic Sea region and the Eastern Partnership countries. The project will also produce a podcast and publish articles.
