Cultural and Creative Industries' Social Effects: Measuring the Unexpected

Bilbao, Spain, 11-12 June 2015

The 10th edition of OcioGune, an International Forum organised by the University of Deusto in partnership with ENCATC and the World Leisure Organisation, will take place in Bilbao, Spain, on 11 - 12 June 2015.

Organised by the University of Deusto in partnership with the European Network on Cultural Management and Cultural Policy Education (ENCATC) and the World Leisure Organisation, this event led by renowned experts will explore the cultural and creative industries (CCI) phenomenon to further the debate about the challenges and opportunities they offer and the difficulties involved in their consolidation from an international comparative perspective. In particular, it will address the progress made in recent years in creating methods and tools aimed at measuring and assessing the social impacts, often unforeseen, of CCIs.

The 10th edition of OcioGune is structured around three Ideas Forums that seek to examine the emerging CCI phenomenon from three approaches that will be the main challenges faced by cultural and creative industries in the coming years:

  • Ideas Forum I - The social effects of CCIs: Progress and issues to explore;
  • Ideas Forum II - Tools for measuring contingencies in CCIs;
  • Ideas Forum III - Artistic creativity and digital innovation.

Experts from different countries in Europe, North America and Latin America will present their most recent contributions to the impact evaluation of creative and cultural industries.
