What are possible ways to facilitate growth for digital platforms? How can cross-sectoral activities help to grow further? What prevents your sector from expanding?

These were the key questions of the Digital Cross Over workshop on 22 April online. Among the participants were representatives from the following 7 sectors, all active in digital: Music, Comics streaming, Gaming, Publishing, Performing artists, Film/TV, and the Performing Arts/AV.

    The goals of the workshop were:
  • to identify the growth drivers for each participant in their sector
  • to understand how to learn + profit from other sectors in the creative industries
  • to discuss how to find the best support by public + private funding institutions.

The outcome will be used as recommendations for public + private institutions to promote cross sectorial activities, presented at the Online Final Presentation on 15 June.

Thanks to all participants for sharing the valuable and highly important expertise of their sector!

The EU project Digital Cross Over, led by the IMZ International Music + Media Centre in cooperation with Ars Electronica, Börsenvereinsgruppe, Centrica and Izneo, is focusing on cross-sector innovations and the potential of synergies + cooperation. As part of the Creative Europe funding programme of the European Commission, this project aims at bridging culture + audiovisual content through digital technologies.
