Creative Spark

Creative Spark is a five year initiative to support international university and institutional partnerships to develop enterprise skills and creative economy across seven countries in Central Asia (Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan), South Caucasus (Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia) and Ukraine through UK support.
In two years Narxoz and CUSE have been working in several directions to develop creative entrepreneurship in Almaty:
Awareness raising
In the framework of the Programme we have carried our series of events to promote creative entrepreneurship among adolescent and young people in Almaty - Creative Almaty Forum and Creative Almaty Days. Activities have been shared on YouTube and other social media.
Curriculum development
In the framework of the Programme we have carried our series of events to promote creative entrepreneurship among adolescent and young people in Almaty - Creative Almaty Forum and Creative Almaty Days. Activities have been shared on YouTube and other social media.
Partnership
We have built strong connections with the Almaty's Mayor's Office and its Department of Culture and Archives. In February 2020, we became a member of Almaty City's Creative Industries Council. Additionally, as a member of the British Chamber of Commerce in Kazakhstan we are also active members of its Creative Economy Committee.
Research
In partnership with British Council, Narxoz researchers have co-authored the first Mapping of Creative Economy in Kazakhstan. Co-authors of this report have formed the Creative Economy Center with the university to support and develop creative industries in Kazakhstan and Central Asia through research, education and action.
