As everyone knows, chicken and egg situation is widely accepted dilemma. Correspond to it, the new question has arisen recently with the development of creativity and innovation concepts. With the assumption that individual creativity will create prosperity, the Creative Industries that intersect with the concept of innovation commonly used in the world of economics have the potential to directly influence the practices that transform higher education in Europe. In parallel with individualization, it is the dominant view that the increase in the number of creative individuals raises the creative industries and these emerging industries are pioneers in the development of new creative individuals. So it is the process and system feed each other.
When someone says “creative industry”, it is meant that about all sectors whose activities are based on cultural and artistic values alongwith individual or collective creative expressions. Talents and skills which are included in the creative industries can generate common identity in addition to economic prosperity. They are vanguard of innovation and they are also source of positive spillovers for remaining industries.
Advertising, architecture, art, crafts, design, fashion, film, music, performing arts, publishing, R&D, software, toys and games, TV and radio, and video games can be given as an example.
The EU supports creative industries through:
- Advocacy, evidence on the economy of culture
- Regulatory environment
- EU support programs: Creative Europe, Horizon 2020, Cosme, Regional Development and Cohesion Funds, Investment Funds etc.
- EU cultural policy to enhance peer learning and exchange of best practice such as cultural hubs, cities and regions.
The European Commission provides many opportunities for who want to benefit from these funding opportunities regarding creative ideas and initiatives. For example, using the Creative Europe or COSME program, you can come together as performers from the small town of 3 different countries and write a theater about common values and display them in various places. On the other hand, you can create a film truck with a theme of solidarity and respect for differences, visit the villages of Southern Europe, and organize free and public film screenings there. If you want to combine technology and culture, you can digitize your cultural heritage by using virtual reality, 3D modeling or illustrations.
