Why is it crucial to map the Culture and Creative sector, to study and analyse the enterprises, the stakeholders, the artists and the key players? Why does it have to be a dynamic process, what does it offer to policymakers, and how does it help in networking and synergies? George Sarlis and Andreas Tsiliras will explain how important it is to develop such a dynamic tool supporting strategising and decision-making and helping authorities design tailor-made support actions for professionals in the Cultural and Creative Economy. Finally, they will present as a case study their survey in the Region of Western Greece (2019).
