Kurziv is a non-profit organisation whose activities are dedicated to media, culture and education. Its activities, realized both in online and offline space, are aimed at changing, reshaping and deepening public discussion on the topics and issues of contemporary cultural and artistic practices, civil society and media.

The main project of the organisation is the internet portal Kulturpunkt.hr that was founded in 2005. Its goal is to intervene in Croatian media landscape presenting, analysing and contextualising contemporary artistic and cultural production and theory in a wider sense and follow civil society and activities of civil society organisations, everyday life, politics, cultural and media policies. Through active involvement with cultural and artistic production, Kulturpunkt.hr has become the only media which gives the most comprehensive and continuous insight into the activities and development of independent culture in Croatia, and its importance is simultaneously spreading in the regional context.
Starting from this core project, Kurziv has developed several strategic goals and activities. With opening the public debates it is enhancing the position of culture in the Croatian media landscape in general with a specific focus on independent cultural production. Furthermore it is one of the main actors in the advocacy activities towards strengthening of the position of non profit media in the field of culture and civil society in Croatia. Kurziv has also recognized the importance of historicizing the development of the independent cultural scene in the last twenty years and thus initiated project dedicated to archiving, documenting and analysing this important segment of the cultural scene in Croatia. The aim of the project is to create online and offline base of documentation available to everyone and free for further use which will contribute to future analyses and understanding of the period. Finally, because of the general lack of serious and critical writing in the field of culture, but also due to changes in the educational system, Kurziv organizes an educational program for young journalists, Kulturpunkt’s Journalistic School, consisting of journalism skills training courses and lectures on theoretical and historical approaches to contemporary culture, arts and theory.

Fundación Española para la Innovación de la Artesanía

The present project shall provide a better understanding of the relationships between culture, crafts, design, creativity, entrepreneurship and innovation and the measurement of culture- and creativity-based innovation and how important the cooperation between different sectors is.

The project idea arises from a book published 4 years ago and the current exhibition in Madrid resulting from that book: www.artesaniadevanguardia.es . The exhibition has an innovative approach that reveals the most cutting edge side of Spanish crafts, its interaction with the design field and the interesting harmony emerged between these two areas. This vision is quite new in the southern part of Europe but very well developed already in northern countries. The project aims at sharing this vision among different partners and countries by encouraging cooperation among individuals, entities and other stakeholders of the cultural sector.

The objectives of the proposed project are: to encourage collaboration / debate among craftworkers and designers; to refresh the image of crafts and highlight the most innovative and advanced area of this sector; to approach contemporary craft to: designers, design-makers, coolhunters and entrepreneurs interested in setting up a business with a handmade production; supporting transnational cultural themes and products which help to foster a greater sense of European identity; and, facilitating exchanges of good practices of similar initiatives among the partners of the project.

The main activities would be: 1. hosting in the participating countries the Spanish crafts exhibition characterized by its interaction with design, in the framework of a relevant design event in the country ; 2. A forum in each country consisting of: a conference in the morning with leading craftmakers / designers and a “pecha kucha” in the afternoon; (3. Partner countries are invited to send a design/crafts exhibition to the other participating countries if they have one available). Of course, all this should be discussed and readjusted between partners once the consortium is established.
