Project idea title Polis Days
Specific problem to be addressed In the Balkan peninsula few urban policies focus in depth economy as a part of the creative industry. The dynamic of the creative industry is not accompanied by local development, while unemployment rates are rising and entrepreneurship initiatives are almost non-existent.
Main project activities planned The idea proposes the development of a network that will be aiming to evolve the creative industry and create social cooperatives and social enterprises in the field of culture. The main tool of the project is the creation of a social incubator in a space that will be allocated by each partner.
