Mosi Dorbayani’s Coadunate Economic Model
According to Mosi: “from economics point of view, cultural sector is already a dynamic factor of economic activities and employment – especially in North America and Europe. Cultural activities often facilitate promotion of social inclusion, diversity and contribute to the reduction of physical and mental poverty. Creative entrepreneurs, artists, writers, performers and vibrant cultural industries are unique sources of innovation for the future sustainability. This potential should be recognized even further, and fully explored by both cultural practitioners and government agencies.
Utilizing the full potential of culture can help build a more inclusive and fairer world, in which, innovation, creativity, sustainability and growth could be realized for all. Culture promotes active citizenship and intercultural dialogue within a nation and across the globe. It can empower people and facilitate social cohesion. It brings people and communities closer together, includes refugees and other migrants, and helps people feel related. Culture and creative industry have the power to improve lives, transform communities, generate jobs and growth, and influence other sectors of economy.”
