Street Culture for Regions

About the Project

Street Culture for Regions brings those on the margins of society - NEETs, ethnic minorities, or migrant backgrounds, and those from deprived neighbourhoods - into both entrepreneurship training and meaningful economic activity, through the medium of “Street Culture”.

Street culture has grown exponentially in recent years, driven by the mainstreaming of youth culture and the revitalization of urban areas. From street art to food trucks, pop-up markets to cutting edge fashion and sport, street culture is any commercial activity that takes place “on the streets” and contains the creative forces that can mould lifestyles and drive the economy.

Our project comprises four inter-related intellectual Outputs:

  1. Opportunities in Street Culture Resource pack. A set of documents, multimedia resources and interactive activities that enables entrepreneurship stakeholders, leaders, and educators to understand how street culture can be harnessed as part of entrepreneurial skills development.
  2. Street Culture Alliances and Action Plans. A guide to implementing ongoing collaboration between key organizations and stakeholders so that investment in street culture entrepreneurship training can create sustainable impact on social inclusion and cultural economic development.
  3. Street Culture Open Education Resources. The hub of the new street entrepreneurship training model resources include: a first ever dedicated curriculum, learning objectives, and assessment ideas; trainers guide and suggested activities and interactive multimedia content for teaching and learning.
  4. Street Culture App. An accessible way to maximize engagement with entrepreneurial skills development directly for potential entrepreneurs the app will provide direct self LED learning in small bite sized chunks.
