From Sociocultural Animation to Creative Economy 1976-2016
Authors: Luís Matos Martins; Teresa Preta
This article aims to make the connection – not clear at first sight – between the concept of sociocultural animation, that started to appear in Portugal during the 70s, and the Creative Economy, a 21st Century concept. In general, although the bridge is not direct, both concepts converge with respect to the territorial animation that they carry out. We use two examples to show this interconnection: Marvila Recicla Project and Ericeira Business Factory.
