Think up Culture!is back in town for the 5th consecutive year. It’s main aim is to inspire, strengthen and give oportunities to entrepreneurs from the cultural and creative industries. TUC! is a space to debate and learn about funding cultural and creative industries by mentoring, fast-tracking and supporting their projects. It’s a platform for opportunities, dialogue and ideas for everyone in these industries! TUC!’s headquarters for this edition are Palma, Menorca, Barcelona and Izmir (Turkey).
The themes covered in every city are the following:
– Menorca: cinematic culture and toursim. A total of 10 projects will be mentorized in the HUB section.
– Barcelona: Financing and cultural sponsorship. A total of 15 cultural projects from the Balearic Islands moved to Barcelona to receive education on those topics. TUC! was first held in Barcelona with a new format to promote Balearic companies and projects in the Catalan capital, as well as to train cultural managers and entrepreneurs on issues related to patronage and the search for financing.
– Izmir: women and culture, creative territories, culture and tourism. A dozen cultural and creative projects were chosen to be part of TUC! under the HUB section.
– Mallorca: The island became a meeting point for discussion and action to work on different social challenges with new perspectives and strategies from around the national territory. That’s why it was widely discussed how to unite new projects related to culture and innovation, mapping the active cultural industries that work in a dinamic and innovative way. As a result we categorized and mapped the different agents of the cultural and creative ecosystem in Mallorca.
