Projektet spørger blandt andet kunstnere, virksomheder og formidlende organisationer i Danmark, Sverige, Holland, Belgien, Spanien og Finland og sammenligner indhold og opbygning af eksisterende efteruddannelser på området.

TAFI – Training Artists for Innovation – tog i uge 50 endnu et spadestik på et 2-dages seminar på Artlab. TAFI-projektet arbejder med at kortlægge de kompetencer, som kunstnere skal bruge, når de arbejder med kunstnerisk baserede koncepter og ydelser i private og offentlige virksomheder.

Projektet spørger blandt andet kunstnere, virksomheder og formidlende organisationer i Danmark, Sverige, Holland, Belgien, Spanien og Finland og sammenligner indhold og opbygning af eksisterende efteruddannelser på området.

Gæster på TAFI-seminaret var Birgitte Dam Jensen, instruktør og indehaver af www.institutforforandring.dk, og Hans Fagt, trommeslager og indehaver af www.creativehands.dk.

De fortalte om deres kunstneriske baggrund, deres individuelle veje ind til arbejdet som ’artist in business’, hvilke former for ydelser, de har udviklet til virksomheder, hvilke kunstneriske kompetencer, de trækker på, og ikke mindst hvilken effekt deres arbejde har for virksomhederne. Indlæggene fra de to erfarne og indsigtsfulde kunstnere blev efterfølgende reference for hele mødet. De europæiske partnere var meget imponeret af niveauet og kompleksiteten af de opgaver, de to kunstnere løser

Pan-European project to investigate creative interventions in business

A unique new two-year project was launched today to examine how innovation and creativity can be stimulated in European businesses through the intervention of artists and creatives. Led by the Dutch foundation Cultuur-Ondernemen (Culture and Entrepreneurship), Training Artists for Innovation (TAFI) will analyse the needs of business for artists’ skills and investigate the competences needed by artists in order to intervene as businesses require.

Qualification and Skills Framework

TAFI will review the existing and developing models for training artists and creatives to work in business contexts and the need for intermediary platforms. The results of the analyses performed in the first part of the project will be used to develop a qualification and skills framework for artists working in business. A handbook, based on input from artists, intermediaries and businesses, will describe this framework and several successful training models, list a number of best practice cases illustrating creative interventions and contain cultural policy recommendations for stimulating innovation through the interventions of artists.

Substantial Contribution

While there is considerable evidence for the need of business for the creativity that artists and creatives can deliver, there is a shortage of artists with the necessary expertise and experience. By developing a qualification & skills framework and identifying training models, TAFI will make a substantial contribution to the pool of artists and creatives skilled enough to deliver creative interventions in business effectively. This project shows how the objective of the European Agenda for Culture to promote culture as a catalyst for creativity can be translated into action by putting artists in the position of creative interveners in business.

Leveraging experience and expertise

The project is scheduled to run from May 2011 through to April 2013 and will leverage experience and expertise in this field from various EU countries. TAFI is being led and coordinated by the Dutch foundation Cultuur-Ondernemen in collaboration with project partners from five other European countries: Artlab and Kunstgreb APS from Denmark, Theatre Academy Helsinki (TeaK) from Finland, C2masi s.l. from Spain, Skådebanan Västra Götaland AB (TILLT) from Sweden and Berufsförderungsinstitut Oberösterreich (BFI OÖ) from Austria. KEA, the Brussels-based consultancy specialised in culture and creativity, is involved in the writing of the policy recommendations. The results will be disseminated through several Dutch and European networks, such as ELIA, IETM, Cultural Action Europe, Encatc and CEREC (Arts&Business network). A final conference in Brussels will attract several policy-making organisations to discuss the recommendations.
