As part of the 6th International Project Meeting, the transnational “Art and Business Forum”, convened on December 2 in Évora, joined together in a single day and in the same place, for the first time since the beginning of the project, all the ICE Net agents, including partners, experts and representatives of 24 art and cultural companies. This initiative sought to deepen and promote possibilities of cooperation, as well as present the results and expectations of the project. During the Forum, all companies had the opportunity to participate in meetings of about 15 minutes with their counterparts in other regions of Europe, with the goal to establish contacts, exchange experiences and deepen the possibilities for cooperation  proposed by ICE expert network.

The Forum also comprised 3 workshops, monitored by representatives of the transnational expert network and dedicated to subjects relevant for the activity of the art and cultural companies, such as available financing alternatives, copyright, marketing and communication.
The results of such cooperation will now be compiled within the ICE network. During the next implementation period of the project, the contacts established up to now shall be strengthened and a set of supporting tools shall be made available to those European art and culture companies.
The Forum closed with a dinner, during which were projected the complete short films, produced by the partner regions, aimed at promoting the cultural value of the ICE territories and acting as alternative cultural itineraries. These short films will now be compiled into web-series.
