Fostering diversity in the production of cultural and creative industries.
The Diversity Mixer project aims to foster diversity in the production of cultural and creative industries of Primorje-Gorski Kotar County.
Through this project, together with its strategic partner – the University of Rijeka, RIJEKA 2020 wants to further establish the notion of “diversities” used in its slogan, both in the workplace, i.e. the structure of employees, and the content they produce, as well as in the audiences they address.
During 2019, the project explored the existing “diversity management” practices in the public and private sector of cultural and creative industries on the local and European level and identified transferable models. The international conference Invisibles: Diversity in Culture and Creative Industries, dealing with diversity in terms of content, was also held as a part of the project.
The year 2020 will see the capacity building activities for workers in organisations and companies and the goal is to influence the process of public policymaking and to incorporate new criteria in the system of public financing. In October 2020 the city of Rijeka, institutions and cultural organisations in Rijeka and Primorje-Gorski Kotar County will sign the Diversity Charter.
