MEMBERS OF THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF CREATIVE AND CULTURAL INDUSTRIES MEET AT THE ART INCUBATOR OF ANYKŠČIAI
The National Association of Creative and Cultural Industries (the Association) continues its internal networking by inviting its members to a meeting of cultural and creative industries (CCI) professionals. These are informal meetings for members and friends of the Association, as well as guests who would like to become members. The meetings discuss the latest trends, policy, research and funding issues in the sector, initiate new activities and projects, and bring together professionals to share their experiences, challenges and solutions, and examples of good practice.
On the 1st of July 2022, members of the Association met at the Anykščiai Arts Incubator. A great mood, friendly atmosphere, endless conversations and discussions accompanied the whole meeting. Jurgita Bražiskienė, a member of the Association, Director of the Social Leadership Association and representative of the Employment Service under the Ministry of Social Security and Labour, presented the Employment Service’s tools for recruitment, retraining, apprenticeship, traineeship, social partnership and other opportunities available to the CCI sector; she answered and commented on the questions raised by participants. We discussed the situation of NGOs in the cultural and creative industries – progress and challenges – NGO representation, advocacy, development and funding, and shared the challenges faced and the solutions sought. We discussed project experiences, plans, perspectives and opportunities for cooperation. During our visit to Anykščiai Arts Incubator, we got to know the artists-in-residence, their activities and current affairs better.
We encourage our members not to miss opportunities to meet, learn and share together. We invite friends and those who want to get to know the association to join us. Contact: email@example.com
