(Closed) Open Call: Supporting Creative Industries Mapping in Georgia

We are seeking proposals from UK consultants and organisations to advise on 'Supporting Creative Industries Mapping in Georgia' – a programme aiming to foster mapping and research skills and activities within the creative industries in Georgia

'Supporting Creative Industries Mapping in Georgia’ is a partnership with Creative Georgia and the Ministry of Education, Science, Culture and Sport. It aims to:

  • Encourage sector representatives in Georgia to work towards mapping, outlining the needs of the sub sectors as well as the creative industries sector as a whole;
  • Facilitate capacity building of creative sector representatives in research and mapping;
  • Raise the awareness about the importance of research and mapping in strategic planning, project management, etc.
  • Foster emergence of research and mapping data in creative industries.

About Georgia

Located at the crossroads between Asian and European cultures, the South Caucasus region including Georgia, holds a unique geographic, cultural and political significance. Georgia’s population is 3.9 million and it occupies the area of 67,700sq km. Development of CCIs is one of the eight priorities in the national Culture Strategy 2025. The UNESCO Culture for Development Indicators process revealed a high contribution of CCIs to economy and employment in Georgia i.e. share of culture in total output is 2.8%, which could be used as alternative figure for GDP too, involving 5.1% of the workforce in Georgia, but these figures are under-estimates, which require more detailed study. The Georgian arts scene is vibrant and provides many opportunities to develop mutually beneficial relationships internationally

The Opportunity

The main role of the UK supplier will be to provide a package of recommendations for research and mapping activities into subsectors of the creative industries in Georgia. This will include working closely with consortiums of organisations, selected by Creative Georgia, who will carry out the mapping to provide capacity building, mentoring and support through the research process.

Who are we looking for?

  • Track-record in carrying out mapping/research in the creative and cultural industries
  • Experience in the design and production of capacity building programmes/workshop development, including virtual delivery
  • Track record of mentoring businesses/organisations in the creative and cultural industries
  • Exceptional communication and relationship management across a diverse and varied range of stakeholders
  • The capacity to deliver high quality work to agreed timeframes
  • Knowledge and experience of the Georgian creative industries (desirable)

The deadline for proposals is 27 November 23.59 GMT
