Summary of ECHN online family brunch #4

Last week, we followed up on the topics that we discussed in our previous meeting and any respective progress made. Some of the topics discussed were: Creative FLIP P2P exchange program and its online adaptation, also how we can concentrate all local initiatives and compare information from each country and its response to the current situation.

Part of the wider discussion was how we can trace and assess the needs of hubs and creative businesses at the moment.

Namely, Poligon Center in Slovenia has put together an online survey on the impact of the Covid-19 crisis on workers in the cultural and creative field. This survey was launched last week in Slovenia and the feedback was overwhelming. Luka Piskoric, co-founder of Poligon and member of our Board presented the survey during the online brunch and also shared a test version to ask for the members’ feedback in order to see how the same survey can be adapted in different countries, so we have some comparable data.

Moreover, we shared a working document on how a survey for creative hubs could look like, what are the aims, needs and possible topics to cover. You can find all the things noted down here:

Last but not least, our session closed with some nice music to which we all happily danced to! See you next week!
