Are you realising creative/cultural/artistic activities in rural areas/small towns/sparsely populated and/or low urbanized areas? If so, we are looking just for you.
We do need your knowledge and experience!

Why and what for?

We think your organization/business is important. You create value for your local community in terms of people's sense of belonging, meaningfulness and keeping the countryside active and interesting. We want to help businesses/organisations like yours to improve your economic situation, support innovation and resilience so that you can continue to produce these values long into the future.

Would you share some of your knowledge and experience with us?

Please feel invited to take part in the open on-line research. The questionnaire in English you will find HERE.

The purpose of this survey is to collect some basic, general information about the creative organisations/businesses active in sparsely populated, non-urban areas in Europe. The online survey is accompanied by more detailed  interviews.

We will collect this data Europe-wide, but especially in 4 partnering, European countries: Poland, Sweden, Italy and Latvia. We will analyze our findings and try to create a better understanding of the sector and some general recommendations for improvement/strengthening the sector on the European level, without losing any of your core values, rather enhance them.

After the research phase, we will initiate two pilot cases in each country. As an effect, we will offer training programmes and business/organisation development services dedicated to non-urban, creative entities.

This survey is available in English, Polish, Swedish, Latvian and Italian.
It takes around 10-15 minutes to answer the questions.

In advance - thank you for your time and answers!


This is an EU-project called „CHANGE CREATORS. Innovative business models for the non-urban creative sectors”. The main aim of the project is to contribute to innovation, sustainability and resilience of the alternative cultural and creative places located in sparsely populated areas. We do this through discovering, testing and introducing new business models and audience development models. The project is co-financed by the European Union within the Creative Europe Programme.
