Atlantic Arc Cities
Friday, 29 August 2014 13:11
Local authorities of the Atlantic Arc have identified cultural and creative industries (CCI) as a priority sector for economic development. Over the years, innovation and the use of new technologies have become cornerstones for the transformation of our urban economies, and the Atlantic Arc Cities are developing the necessary skills and tools to register within this framework of evolution. The implementation of transnational projects aiming at stimulating the ICC sector should be stepped up by a closer cooperation between the entities of the Atlantic Arc. The promotion of creative and culturally dynamic Atlantic Arc cities now passes through the pooling of resources and the capitalization on existing projects.
As research and innovation are flagships in the Europe 2020 strategy, networking between the stakeholders in the sector, initially at the Atlantic Arc level then in the longer term at a European level, has become a necessity to increase the potential of the cities in terms of creativity. Therefore, the Conference of Atlantic Arc Cities has launched a working group to put into practice the thoughts around creative territories, innovative sustainable tourism, digitization and dissemination of content. Organised together with the city of Plymouth and Plymouth College of Art, CAAC’s Creative Cities workshop will take place on September 19th. It is open to all Creative Atlantic Stakeholders. Participation is free of cost but registration is compulsory HERE before September 12th.
