Female artists and creatives have experienced loss of business and income as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The DigiKommune project envisages skills development through tailored learning and knowledge exchange to enable creative businesses to take their work online. It focuses on female artists and creatives, running their own creative business, who would like to enhance their digital skills, and soft skills, in order to develop virtual online business models to reach out to prospective audiences and consumers across Europe.
The project is particularly concerned with the soft skills and digital/virtual skills sets required for online business success in adapting to the new Covid-era, in which the creative industries have suffered greatly as face to face models of business provision have been massively compromised. Many have also experienced career disruption and income curtailment.
The target audience of DigiKommune are: female artists and creatives with reduced earning potential with prior work experience or exposure to arts, creative, cultural, tourism, night-time economy, music and media with experience in the creative, arts, heritage, events and music industries, creative education, venue promotion or location pursuits.
