Cultural Consultancy is a thing.
With culture sitting at the core of any community, we believe that through research and proper community engagement, culture and creative industries can be impacted positively andd sustainably.
CCI Mapping & Strategy
Mapping of the creative and cultural industries in a set geographic area is imperative to understand its potential for socio-economic well-being. In addition to working on well-tracked indicators, we have also built an agile approach to working with little to no data in markets that are in the process of realizing the important role of the CCIs for their economy and society. We have proved to be able to work in challenging contexts to map, collect and design strategies to improve the socio-economic contribution of the CCIs to a creative economy.
CCI Skill & Talent Gap Analysis
Understanding the standing point of the human capital of a community is critical to its economic growth. However, we understand that each community has its own characteristics. With that in mind, using our own methodology, we design unique research approaches to understand the skill and talent gaps of a community and accordingly recommend the needed education or awareness programs.
Through a well defined set of metrics, we collect data on the social status of a community. This data is then combined with focused discussions conducted within the community and field surveys to provide context to the data and insights of the current status quo and what a particular community aspires for its future.
Communal Dialogue Activation
Dialogue is essential to build trust and to create much needed collaborations between community members. We facilitate exploration sessions that help them pin down the subjects a community aspires to discuss and accordingly develop an engagement plan that initiates the necessary conversations.
Cultural Vibrancy Index
Through a well defined set of metrics grouped under two major indicators; 1) Cultural Infrastructure and 2) Innovation clusters, combined with current and historic context, we are able to measure the Cultural Vibrancy of a city, region or nation and define its unique creative and cultural offerings.
Unique Cultural Proposition Identification
Depending on the context we are dealing with, we devise specific strategies to define the Unique Cultural Proposition of a community, city, region or nation. This approach is critical to align policy makers and the community towards a common purpose that will shape their behaviors, their decisions and eventually their identity.
Cultural Master Planning
This is more focused on the designing the cultural experience of visitors to a specific urban space. Such an approach is a follow on to specific needed research and analysis. The experience is always designed with the host community in mind to make sure they are the ones who eventually deliver it.
