About the Project

“Creative Twist - Boosting the Cultural and Creative Industries in Georgia”

Project Implementer: LEPL Creative Georgia
Donor: UNESCO IFCD 
Length: 24 Months (17/02/2021 - 28/02/2023) 
Project proposes to: 1) conduct a research and mapping exercise to measure the social and economic impact of cultural and creative industries (CCIs) in order to inform the development of an evidence-based policy; 2) raise awareness on CCIs and their economic dimension; 3) elaborate medium-term state strategy and action plan for CCIs, identifying the fiscal, legislative and/or policy measures required for their development. 

How does this project contribute to the implementation of the 2005 Convention?
  • Contributes to a sustainable system of cultural policy in Georgia – The project has been designed to provide data on the social and economic value of CCIs in order to review the current legal framework. To implement those measures and policies, a strategic document and action plan will be presented to the relevant authority for adoption.
 
  • Strengthens the role of civil society in the implementation of Georgia’s cultural policy – Throughout the project, consultations with civil society will be organized in order to develop an evidence-based policy that will answer the needs of the people it will impact.
