CCIC Regional Alliance News from Ireland

grace CCIC Regional Alliances, Latest News

We are working to establish 4 CCIC Regional Alliances, one each in Ireland, Northern Ireland/UK, Sweden and Poland.  These Alliances bring together VET providers and HEIs, creative industry bodies, economic actors, local governments and wider stakeholders to explore best practice in integrating entrepreneurship education into creative start ups and community change makers.

Ireland held its first Regional Alliance Meeting on Monday 30th November 2015. The Region consists of counties Roscommon, Mayo and Galway. The focal point for this meeting was a discussion on Existing and Emerging Creative Sector initiatives in our region: Remit, Gaps and Opportunities.The opportunity to develop a Creative Hub in the Region was also discussed.

The suggestion to turn an underutilised and eyesore property in Ballaghdereen, Co. Roscommon into afforbable space for creative and enterprise activity was put forward for further discussion at the next Alliance meeting scheduled for 15th February 2016.
