Sourced through Scoop.it from: ec.europa.eu
The aim of the Pilot Project is to identify, analyse and publicise the best practice in Europe’s crowdfunding market in relation to the cultural and creative sectors (CCS), including inter alia architecture, archives, libraries and museums, artistic crafts, audiovisual (including film, television, video games and multimedia), tangible and intangible cultural heritage, design, festivals, music, literature, performing arts, publishing, radio and visual arts.
The project is expected to provide an overview of the different crowdfunding models currently operating in Europe and which can be used to finance projects in the field of the cultural and creative sectors. The purpose of the study on crowdfunding for the CCS – which is the main element of the pilot project – is to collect and analyse data in order to support the European Commission in the implementation of its political objectives regarding access to alternative sources of finance for the SMEs in the CCS and to provide case studies of good practice.
