NXT-CREATIVES is a virtual meeting point for artists, art students, art educators, cultural entrepreneurs, researchers, creative hubs and creative businesses.
NXT-CREATIVES aims to share digital learning materials, showcase selected artists and support networking between the stakeholders.
NXT-CREATIVES is a digital platform developed as part of the project NXT - Making a Living from the Arts, co-funded by the Creative Europe programme (formally known as NE©XT Accelerator). To know more about the project, please visit the NXT Project page.
The digital platform NXT-CREATIVES is composed of three main sections:
NEU NOW ARTISTS: is a showcase of exceptional emerging talents in all art disciplines, promoting artistic excellence and creating an (inter)national springboard for artists of the future. All artists selected in the past eight editions of NEU NOW (750 and counting) are showcased here.
CREATIVE CENTRES PLATFORM: This is a useful mapping tool, which makes it easier to find the most relevant creative centres in Europe: hubs, incubators and art schools with specific cultural entrepreneurship programmes.
Are you an artist and you are looking for a residency programme? Are you a cultural entrepreneur and you are looking for project partners? Are you a student looking for a master programme in cultural entrepreneurship?
This useful search tool of the creative centers platform allows filtering on the base of the centers’ location and services provided.
KNOWLEDGE CENTRE: Beside the content produced during the project NXT – Making a Living form the Arts (toolkits for students and educators, case studies on creative hubs and art schools and more), the knowledge centre wants to be a library of useful information recourses, published researches and digital tools in any of the topics normally included in the field of cultural entrepreneurship.
Pricing, business models, crowd-funding, researches on the growth of the creative industry and much more is included in this digital library. The content is regularly updated with new publications.
