fostering international creative entrepreneurship

The organisation

b.creative is an international non-profit association (AISBL) established in Brussels in March 2019. It functions under the management of a Board composed of 13 members, including a General Secretariat represented by KEA European Affairs – an international policy design research centre specialised in culture and creative industries. 

Based in Brussels since 1999, KEA’s mission is to provide policy advice to make territories, organisations and people more aware of their cultural and creative resources, to unlock the potential of culture, including heritage, for economic and social development. KEA has consolidated its brand and reputation over the years as a result of a proven track-record of successfully concluded assignments and studies throughout the EU and in third countries (Western Balkans, Asia, South Africa and the Caribbean).
