Welcome to the DeuS community!

Why do we need a community?

We strongly believe in cultural and creative skills. 

They can play an essential role within the future crucial E.U. strategies, as European Green Deal and the New European Bauhaus: they can raise awareness, initiate the debate on climate change and ecology, and prototype solutions together with civil society and policymakers.

Not only: policymakers increasingly cite the term ‘creativity as fundamental to future economic growth and innovation of the economies of the E.U. and other post-industrial nations. Creative jobs will become a significantly higher percentage of the overall employment landscape by 2030, given their resistance to automation.

To unlock the potential of creative skills to tackle current and future challenges, we need to consider creativity as an overarching and transversal skill that should inform each branch of education, facilitating a mutual comprehension of tools, techniques, approaches, and solutions, thus contributing to a holistic approach to complexity

It’s not simply introducing culture or creativity into the curricula, but it’s related to focal concepts as experimentation through mistakes, learning by doing, trial and error.

We need to familiarize ourselves with experimentation and mistakes as tools of creativity, engagement, investigation, and innovation.

The future of education should be centered around creative principles, leveraging collaboration and knowledge exchange within different sectors, promoting the participation of different professionals and stakeholders in tackling common challenges, creating the conditions for the entire society to contribute. We should build “A school of formation, not of information.”

So we designed DeuS as a ‘thinking place’ for new educational pathways to shape and promote V.E.T. (vocational and educational) training solutions in support of the cultural and creative industries by experimenting with an innovative training methodology and tailored validation framework. 

We need your contribution and passion to strengthen the role of creative professionals and make stronger connections with other sectors of the market: let

  1. Thanks Rita. Indeed we are living a phase for Europe and for the Cultural and Creative sector where the “usual” sector needs are now more and more relevant because of the effect of the pandemic. I like very much the idea of considering CC professionals and organisations part of the solution our society will have to develop.
    And super great to see that DEUS is a New European Buahaus aligned initiative born even before NEB was launched!
    Looking forward to see how this community will progress, grow and nurish new thoughts and very practical actions!
