On June 10 in Brussels, Alessio Michelotti from OPEN EU OFFICE and Gabriele Koch from GERMAN OPEN FORUM, they took part in the reflexion group meeting held in Brussels by SMART EU, whose theme was "support on creative professionals in Europe". The participants were experts came from 10 different European countries, for a comparison of experiences on the sector situation in their countries.

The creativity sector in the art and in the performing arts fields, is in vertical growth in Europe, but the social security systems in member states have not yet been able to take the peculiarities of these activities, and sometimes fail to provide to creative workforce nor the rightful guarantees, nor dignified treatment.

This gap is particularly targeted at the independent performing art and freelance artists and then to a large extent even at street art. One of the aims of OPEN STREET is to activate new services for street artists in Europe, and from this point of view in the professional support services, employment counseling and tax assistance, represent some of the most popular requests that must be take into account.


2011 june 4. Street art is in the domain of cultural industries?

On 4 June, in Wallonia’s capital, in the OPEN FESTIVAL "Namur en Mai", was held the 1° OPEN MEETING 2011, promote and organized by the Belgian base of the OPEN EUROPEAN FORUM.

Reflection by Jean Felix Tirtiaux, artistic director of Namur en Mai, has developed around the theme of the relationship between creativity and economics; between industry and culture. Guests included the Catalan Institute of Cultural Industries of Brussels, which supports the foreign tour of Catalan companies, with particular attention to the spectacle of the street and circus.

Creativity is the lifeblood of the economy. This is the key concept of European policies which implement the resolution 1350/2008, the act whereby the European Council has set up in 2009 the Year of Creativity and Innovation and launched, among others, the Culture Programme 2007-2013. OPEN STREET is supported through this program. And it is true that street art is an area with a strong creative arts. But it is legitimate to refer to the category of industry? Street art can be part of the cultural industries or is it something antithetical to the industry? This was the question on which many interventions intended to reflect in Namur.

To OPEN the city gates to performing arts means to bring out the value of open air spaces assigned to social life, to enforce the cohesion inside communities, to improve the local tourist activity, to create new routes for exchange and integration between European countries.

The creation of a international debate, the comparisons between normative and laws, different urban patterns and policies for development and support of performing arts, will drive to a new consciousness and will produce new stimulus in administrators and art operators. This route could not be undertaken on a simple regional or local level. Our country, now, is Europe!
