Participants of CCA from different countries came together in 2021 to launch a network for creative and cultural leaders in Central Asia – Creative Central Asia Networks. It’s mission to contribute to the development of the creative economy in Central Asia, to create the basis for the branch associations of creative entrepreneurs in each of the Central Asian countries.
All individuals and organisations can become members of CCAN, regardless of their form of ownership and legal status, but who meet the criteria for membership and have completed the registration form “Welcome to CCAN!” on the website.
Members of the Creative Central Asia 2021 Steering Committee from Central Asian countries and representatives of the British Council in the mentioned Steering Committee are automatically admitted to the CCAN Board at the time of its creation.
The regional CCAN creates a brand, legal structure and a set of standards, checklists, procedures, business processes at the regional level that can be used to create local associations in each of the Central Asian countries. The legal structure, funding sources and size of local associations are selected by the local organizers. Partnership with CCAN is declared by the use of the CCAN logo and other symbols, adherence to its mission and principles.
Plan for CCAN to the next year:
- initiate local associations in countries;
- build a database of creative businesses in Central Asia;
- create a database of educational resources for the creative industries;
- develop a roadmap for the development of the creative economy and adapt it to each of the countries with the help of the local associations.
CCAN has announced three competitions for all five countries in Central Asia. The results of the competitions will be presented during online events.
We received 27 applications from Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. Results of the competition have been announced on CCAN social media.
