Study on Alternative and Innovative Funding Mechanisms for ACP Cultural IndustriesBy Keith Nurse, ACPCultures+, 2017
This study aims to define and identify general trends characterizing the alternative and innovative private and public funding mechanisms and measures in the ACP cultural sector, existing as well as those that might be implemented by providing concrete examples of easily transferable practices and policies implemented in the ACP States and internationally. It also aims to formulate recommendations to ACP and Western policymakers, partners and investors, useful in the formulation of the cultural sector support strategies.
