Name of test case:
Future Creative Industries - Supporting vocational choices of pupils


Where and when was the case tested?
Padova, Italy / April till October 2021


What was the test case about?

The test case “Future Creative Industries” focussed on education and vocational choices of high school students. Therefore regional and local CCI  working in the area of “digital arts” were brought together with pupils, who would like to work in the field of Cultural- and Creative Industries after university. The test case offered pupils a direct, hands-on experience of the professional opportunities that exist for those who embark in a cultural and creative curriculum. The idea of the test case was also to realise an installation which conveys the importance of the skills of CCI and the opportunities of CCI as a work option for students. Stressing the creative and cultural skills related to the creation of a video game, 39 students worked on the installation during an 18-hours workshop, guided by their teachers and two CCI entrepreneurs.
