Nurturing the New Creator

Report from Athens workshop now online

The report from the June 2015 workshop Nurturing the New Creator - hosted by Salzburg Global Seminar and the Athens-based collective cultureFWD - is now available online to read, download and share.

cultureFWD is an independent cultural network founded by the five Young Cultural Innovators from Athens who participated in the Salzburg Global Forum for Young Cultural Innovators in October 2014. Forty-eight participants from a broad spectrum of cultural organizations and creative enterprises in Greece, the United States and the United Kingdom gathered at the BIOS center for art and cross media in Athens for the intensive gathering.

The interactive, education Athens workshop represents part of the greater plan of cultureFWD to help reinforce the role of culture and the arts in society and the economy in Athens. Applying the successful Salzburg Global model in the regional context, cultureFWD aims to break new ground for the culture and creative industries of Greece, by forming  a regional hub that highlights the value of the arts, promotes the work of local creatives and connects them to a global community of cultural innovators.  

Salzburg Global Program Director for Culture and the Arts, Susanna Seidl-Fox said: “Given the dramatic course of events in Greece since the June 23  workshop, we hope that the Salzburg Global Young Cultural Innovators Forum can help by providing capacity building and networking opportunities to even more young cultural innovators in Athens, whose creativity will be critical for driving innovation and sustainable development in their communities in the future.”
