To further our understanding of skills for creative industries, UNESCO-UNEVOC organized a virtual conference from 29 September to 10 October 2014 on the UNEVOC e-Forum. Moderated by Paul Collard, Chief Executive at Creativity, Culture and Education (CCE), an international foundation dedicated to promoting creativity among children and young people through education, this virtual conference explored what skills for creative industries are, the relationship between creative economies and TVET, and the different vocational pathways to creative jobs.
The two-week virtual conference attracted 153 participants from 64 different countries, representing policy makers, researchers and practitioners. The report reflects the general sentiment that creative skills should be valued and that there is a need for such skills to be nurtured across all industries. Indeed throughout the virtual conference, participants saw creative skills as one of the central skill sets needed by all workers in contemporary employment.
