The EU-funded Med Culture project is holding its second regional workshop on “Cultural Entrepreneurship: how to create your own business model” from 26 to 28 February in Amman.

The three-day workshop is organised in three sessions: the first will be dedicated to sustainability; the second to the use of digital technology in cultural entrepreneurial activities (products, dissemination, and fundraising); and, on the last day, participants will be asked to build their own project model.

On the agenda, two visits are scheduled – to Oasis 500 and Darat Al Funun. The visits should allow participants to learn more about the local Jordanian cultural and entrepreneurial environment, and provide them with further networking opportunities.

This activity builds on the achievements of the first workshop, held last December, in which participants debated concepts related to cultural entrepreneurship, were familiarised with marketing strategies and techniques, and discussed mobility issues to boost cultural entrepreneurship.

Med Culture is an EU-funded regional programme that kicked off in February 2014 with the aim of sustaining the creation of institutional and social environments to support culture as a vector for freedom of expression and sustainable development. This should be accomplished by reinforcing the capacities of the public and private cultural sectors as vectors for democratisation, and economic and social development for societies in the Southern Mediterranean. 

Med Culture is part of the regional programme “Media and culture for development in the Southern Mediterranean” which has been allocated a total budget of EUR 17 million over a four-year period, of which EUR 9 million is for the award of grants on a co-financing basis, and EUR 8 million for one capacity-development mechanism on media (Med Media) and one capacity development mechanism on culture (Med Culture).
