CO-CREATIVE REGION is an interactive consulting, coaching and networking programme designed especially for creative professionals in Linz and Upper Austria.
Supporting the professionalization of marketing and public relations efforts is at the heart of CO-CREATIVE REGION’s objectives. Tapping creativity alone is not enough to make a venture successful; rather, it must address how to effectively engage the market in the creative process and how to present ideas, projects and products professionally. Equally, mere presence does not make a successful entrance on platforms, at trade fairs or in magazines and other types of media – attract attention and practise the art of persuasion to turn your ideas into a viable business!
To do so, the CREATIVE REGION organises a series of workshops that focus on pitching, copyright, PR, sponsoring and networking for creative professionals. Experts work with you on your individual projects and products. “Work” denotes not only the acquisition of theoretical knowledge. You are actually writing PR copy, you prepare your next pitch, you gather information about how to network best and you learn what copyright is all about. The workshops are all about actively promoting and further developing your own projects.
CO-CREATIVE REGION aims at making entrepreneurs in the creative industries fit for the development and growth of their business. The programme format is made possible by cooperation between the CREATIVE REGION and impulse – the Austrian Economic Development Services’ creative industries support programme.
