Une artisane inspirée par le lagon

Une artisane inspirée par le lagon

Ceramik’im est le nom sous lequel la céramiste Kim Mangiapan opère. Le déclic pour la céramique se fait en visionnant les photos du travail d’un autre céramiste en Corse. Après une formation de quelques mois en Corse, Kim est revenue en Nouvelle-Calédonie pour installer son atelier à Païta. Sa formation initiale en comptabilité l’aide à gérer son entreprise et la jeune femme vit à présent de son artisanat.

Dans son atelier de poterie, Kim Mangiapan conçoit et fabrique des pièces en terre cuite à destination utilitaire ou décorative. Forte d’une expérience de trois ans, Ceramik’im a déjà son style en donnant l’aspect du corail à ses poteries.

Les BRUZZ d’OCTA Innovation

Les BRUZZ d’OCTA Innovation

Grâce aux BRUZZ d’OCTA Innovation, nous avons une plateforme basée à Bruxelles pour le partage et la reconnaissance des initiatives innovantes et créatives des Pays et Territoires d’Outre-mer (PTOM). Le BRUZZ est l’occasion de présenter distinctement à l’audience européenne et bruxelloise, chaque PTOM sur des différents sujets novateurs.

L’objectif est d’assurer la sensibilisation et la connaissance des PTOM à un vaste public ou à une audience ciblée afin de générer un intérêt à promouvoir les sujets d’importance du PTOM concerné. Mettre les PTOM au cœur du débat à Bruxelles et au sein de l’Union Européenne c’est promouvoir le secteur privé ainsi que le secteur public, le commerce et les possibilités d’investissements. C’est également véhiculer des actions visant à porter les PTOM à un niveau de partenariat avec les acteurs des secteurs publics et privés de l’Union Européenne.

Les évènements BRUZZ sont un outil d’une grande efficacité pour renforcer la visibilité et la reconnaissance des PTOM. C’est un outil qui permet de diffuser des messages sur mesure, clairs et cohérents (Invitations, Illustrations, photos, vidéos), faisant recours à la technologie de pointe et aux outils en ligne de mobilisation qui permettent l’accès à des sites exceptionnels, à des conférenciers et à des auditoires de haut niveau. Ces facilités offrent une dynamique particulière aux événements et permettent de créer un buzz à court comme à long terme.

OCTA Innovation Issue 3 / 2017 – Curaçao

OCTA Innovation Issue 3 / 2017 – Curaçao

Curaçao is an island strategically situated in the Caribbean Sea just off the coast of the South American mainland. A polyglot society, it boasts more than 60 different nationalities, living and working harmoniously on a 171 square-mile territory. As part of the erstwhile political entity the Netherlands Antilles, the island became an Overseas Country of the European Economic Community in 1964. Historically a trade enclave, today the island’s economic mainstay is centered around tourism, oil refining, financial services and ship repair.

As acting Representative of the Government of Curaçao to the European Union for the past two years and a member of OCTA’s Executive Committee, Ann Philipps, has been advocating a vision of an internationally focused future for her island. This makes the most of Curaçao’s natural assets; a multi-ethnic and multi cultural population speaking several languages and a good strategic position for trade. At the same time, it recognizes the need to forge strong international partnerships and improve the quality of its human capital through an internationally-oriented educational system. This vision for the future was reflected in the theme of Curaçao’s OCTA chairmanship, ‘building strategic partnerships for sustainable development’.

‘Creative Lab Caribbean’ – BIC Award nominee

‘Creative Lab Caribbean’ – BIC Award nominee

 

During 2016, an initiative has been taken in Curaçao to develop ‘Creative Lab Caribbean’, a private sector web-based network of creative talent to exchange knowledge, know-how, skills and experience in the creative sector across the Caribbean. It is modelled on the success of ‘Creative Lab Curaçao.’

The intention is to develop a Caribbean-wide web of entrepreneurial creativity to inspire and motivate. The umbrella aims to share visions, skills knowledge, guidelines, multi-media support and capacity building across the islands and create both online and off-line assignment opportunities. It intends to reach beyond creative and cultural entrepreneurs to include educational institutes and students.

The ‘Creative Lab Caribbean’ team comprises its founder, Gonneke van den Kieboom, who also launched ‘Creative Lab Curaçao’, Sander van Beusekom, Jip Trommelen and Nevita Mezas.

Street Art Skalo – BIC Award nominee

 

This highly creative project, nominated for an OCTA Innovation BIC Award, is all about turning the Scharloo Abou, home of Creative Lab Curaçao, into a space where the island’s creativity can flourish. Both local and international artists will use the 30-40 available walls, parks and street locations as their canvas to make murals, installations and sculptures. The overall message of Street Art Skalo is that art and creativity have entrepreneurial and economic value and bring people together in social activity. The innovative project is also organising events such as a kids’ workshop to be held in 2017. Fundashon Rebiba Skalo Abou and Creative Lab Curaçao represented by Marcel Dennert, Nicole van Beusekom, Sander van Beusekom, Gonneke van den Kieboom are the project’s initiators.

A catalogue of copyright holders for the Caribbean

A catalogue of copyright holders for the Caribbean

Dr. Keith Nurse, a Caribbean Expert and Senior Research Fellow at the University of the West Indies (Barbados), is leading an initiative to create a database and catalogue of copyright holders in the Caribbean and their works. The aim is to make the purchase of Caribbean music by global distribution platforms more attractive.

He says that the catalogue will facilitate negotiations between global music platforms such as ‘Apple’ and ‘Spotify’ and Caribbean artists and production companies.

“The wider we can make the database and catalogue, the better. We are working on developing one for music and there is one already forming for Audio/Video,” he says.

He suggests that Overseas Countries and Territories could participate in such region-wide initiatives.

Dr. Nurse adds that more data on the creative industry in the Caribbean is needed to assist applications for funding for the region’s cultural sector. “The data sets are very spotty and capture only limited information. For example, we have no data on employment. In most countries, we have data on employment by sector but not for the cultural sector,” says Dr. Nurse.

The catalogue and database are vital if Caribbean cultural products are to gain a bigger share of the global market.

“The supply-push approach (i.e. generating more content) will not address the problem of market access/entry which is the key challenge. What is required is a demand-pull approach that can facilitate market penetration,” he says.

“The database/catalogue can also be linked to other initiatives like incubators/accelerators to facilitate market access/entry,’ adds Dr. Nurse.

eLab 2016 – a highlight of November’s Global Enterprise Week in BVI

eLab 2016 – a highlight of November’s Global Enterprise Week in BVI

Barnes PR – As the Virgin Islands prepares to join 130 countries around the world for the celebration of Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) 2016, observed from November 14 – 20, Barnes PR is once again participating in the international celebration of innovators and job creators by hosting its first regional entrepreneurship conference, eLab 2016, as part of its week of activities.

The two-day conference, held Nov 15-16, will bring entrepreneurs in the creative, retail and professional services fields from Overseas Territories around the region through the major sponsorship from the Caribbean Overseas Countries and Territories Small Medium Entrepreneurship (COSME) programme and will provide them with concentrated information in the areas of business development, marketing, intellectual property, accounting, product development and social enterprise.

With the objective of the conference being to strengthen the overall capacity of entrepreneurs to run their businesses more effectively, while providing networking opportunities amongst regional entrepreneurs, GOPA Key Expert and Team Leader for COSME, Diana Hendrickson-Fleming believes that the conference provides the perfect opportunity to fulfill the mandate of the COSME programme.

“With COSME’S overall objective being to contribute to the sustainable and climate-resilient economic diversification and prosperity of Caribbean OCTs, Global Entrepreneurship Week and this conference in general, will provide us with the opportunity to provide entrepreneurs from OCTs with the tools to enhance their businesses,” she said.

Participating entrepreneurs will be given the chance to inspire and share insights from their entrepreneurship journey with talks around the Territory, something, founder of Barnes PR, Sachkia Barnes, believes is essential to preserving the spirit of entrepreneurship.

“As GEW continues to grow in its existence in the Virgin Islands, at Barnes PR we believe that the week of activities should be aimed at feeding and developing the entrepreneurial spirit that exists in the Territory, by allowing young people and all aspiring entrepreneurs to learn from the struggles and triumphs of others.”

Barnes said the week of activities also provides a means of showing communities the value of entrepreneurs. “While a big part of what we have been doing over the past three years serves to encourage entrepreneurs, we also see the efforts as a way to encourage community members, our customers and potential customers, to understand the value – whether it be a service, products, innovation or jobs, we offer our immediate communities.”

Other events for GEW VI 2016 include: a panel discussion on the Importance of Entrepreneurship in Developing Economies on November 16 at the Eileen L. Parsons auditorium on the H Lavity Stoutt Community College campus and Ideas and Cocktails, a pop-up shop and networking mixer for entrepreneurs held November 17 at the JR O’Neal Botanical Gardens.

Registration for the conference is underway and interested entrepreneurs can register at www.barnespr.com where a registration fee of $100 dollars will be charged, which covers all conference material and a reserved vending space for the participants’ business at Ideas and Cocktails. Registration ends November 8th, 2016.
