The Policy Brief on Arts & Design-Based Collaboration and Cross-Innovation practices
To facilitate informed decision-making and spark broader dialogues surrounding Arts & Design-Based Collaboration and Cross-Innovation practices, the Northern Dimension Partnership on Culture has launched a Policy Brief. Download the Summary and the Brief from the links below the text.
“This policy brief is a call to policymakers to become aware of arts & design-based collaboration and cross-innovation, and to champion and form policies that truly drive the practice forward. This is important not only to expand the possibilities of livelihoods for the arts or design professionals, not only for acceleration of new innovations for greater revenues – but due to the necessity to tackle the most complex societal issues of our time.”
The Policy Brief is an outcome of the NDPC led project Creative Cross-Innovations for Sustainability (2022-2023). The aim of the brief is to inform decision-making, to disentangle ecosystem components, and also to kindle new partnerships and spark further discussions around the practice.
The basis of the brief and its 14 presented policy recommendations lies in a data-gathering process that engaged 100+ experts, practitioners, and policymakers through survey responses and interviews. This study is not an academic research, rather carried out with the intention to serve as a useful knowledge base for this specific policy brief. The brief lead author and chief analyst is the commissioned expert Johanna Kouzmine-Karavaïeff, founding partner of the Artisans of Innovation.
The launch event took place on September 12. The recording will be available until October 31, 2023.
