The European Week of Regions and Cities (#EURegionsWeek) is the largest yearly cohesion policy event in Brussels. This year's event is scheduled for 11-14 October 2021.
The first-ever digital #EURegionsWeek in 2020 drew a record-breaking 12.000 participants and 510 sessions.
This year, the RegionArts project will have a dedicated session titled "Creativity for Recovery - how to harness creative power in regional recovery?" and will be in a world café format.
Creativity has always been the European soft power and in recent years, European policy is increasingly embracing creative and cultural industries as horizontal enablers of innovation with a strong social impact, empathy for the environment, and positive effects across all sectors of the economy. Green transition and post-pandemic recovery are huge challenges that will require new creative approaches focused on collaboration and imagination. New European Bauhaus is the best example of the type of cross-disciplinary co-design approach we need going forward. Four successful interregional projects in the field of creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurship (RCIA, UrbanM, RegionArts, and Design4Innovation) will creatively engage the #EURegionsWeek audience to discuss how to harness creative power in regional recovery?
