KEA

Communications

KEA designs and implements communication strategies and tools that mobilise a wide range of stakeholders in culture, creativity and sports ranging from professionals to institutions and the general public.

Our approach to communication is unique: we draw on our specialisation in the creative sectors, combining a deep strategic understanding of public affairs, a large network of contacts, and a wealth of creative ideas to help clients deliver their message with maximum impact in an original way.

We have 20 years of experience during which we have forged strong connections with European institutions, regional representation offices in Brussels, European associations (culture and creativity, sport, cities, regions, innovation) that ensure targeted and effective communications.

Sparks

Sparks

Sparks is an awareness-raising programme that aims to familiarise and engage European citizens with the concept and practice of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) through the topic of technology shifts in health and medicine. KEA developed the winning bid, brought together the members of the consortium of which it is also part and leads Sparks communication activities at EU level. KEA also coordinates the collection and analysis from the different activities developed within the project.
Culture for Cities and Regions

Culture for Cities and Regions

The project aimed to take stock of existing cultural management practices in cities and regions all over Europe, to exchange and promote transfer of knowledge, to better understand successful cases of cultural investment and to go into the details of policy planning and implementation. KEA was the scientific coordinator of the project, managing the methodology of the study visits and coaching sessions. We coordinated 15 thematic study visits in 10 regions and contributed to the drafting of 71 case studies across Europe. KEA was also responsible for the communication activities.
Creative Tracks

Creative Tracks

Creative Tracks aimed at connecting young creative professionals worldwide, encouraging cross-innovation projects and facilitating collaboration with cultural and creative industries. KEA was responsible for the mapping and analysis of creative networks across the world. As a result, more than 1200 networks have been involved so far. KEA also coordinated the Creative Tracks communication. As part of the communication activities, KEA organised two international conferences: b.creative – the global event for creative entrepreneurship to mark the official project launch in November 2016 and closure in November 2017.
