Cultural and creative organizations and individuals, as well as educators and education policymakers in the Eastern Neighbourhood, might be interested to review the results of the research recently published by the Culture and Creativity website.
Entitled “Creativity and the future of skills” and conducted by the Creative Industries Policy and Evidence Centre, the research shows that ‘creativity’ remains an important skill in the workplace.
According to the research results, creativity is likely to be even more important in the future job market than it is now. It reinforces that policymakers should be investing in the workforce’s creative skills.
The analysis suggests that strong project management and organizational skills when combined with creativity, will be a particularly potent mix in the future. This should be a key takeaway for anyone involved in education policy or training.

The Culture and Creativity website was created in 2015 within the framework of the EU’s “Eastern Partnership Culture and Creativity” programme, aiming to promote cultural contribution to the social and economic development of the six Eastern Partnership (EaP) countries: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine.
When the programme came to an end in January 2018, an international association of cultural creators, individuals and organisations was established to continue the work started by the programme. The association encourages collaboration between cultural agents in different sectors in Ukraine and other Eastern Partner countries. It also promotes the professional development of cultural managers in these countries, Easter Neighborhood reports.
