VOL 30

April 05, 2019
@ AGBU Armenia

What is Creative Economy and how to develop it in Armenia? From Advertising and Marketing to Architecture, Arts and Crafts, Design, IT, Publishing, and audio-visual, creative industries are highly transformative in terms of income generation and creating new job opportunities.

In the emergence of this new economic paradigm, the higher educational institutions in Armenia are starting to experiment with making their programmes more market-driven. Students and creative entrepreneurs are starting to develop enterprise skills such as pitching ideas, starting a business and protecting intellectual property.

Leading these developments is the priority for UK Government funded Creative Spark Programme, initiated by the British Council. At the upcoming PechaKucha Night, we will hear from current initiatives and developments. We will also learn how to get involved in the 2nd round call for projects!
