The IbizaCreativa Platform was presented the 17th April 2018 at the Jesus Cultural Center with 34 activities that tourists can already find on the website www.ibizacreativa.com.
More than 50 people attended the presentation of the platform in which tourism entrepreneurs, craftsmen and creative people, who make up the island’s new creative tourism platform, were also able to establish professional contacts.
The Director of Tourism of the Island Council, Mr. Vicent Torres, accompanied by the Councilor of Tourism of the Municipal Council of Ibiza, Mr. Joan Ribas, of Santa Eulària, Mrs. Carmen Ferrer and of Sant Joan, Mr. Jaume Mari, participated to the presentation of the platform as well as the Director of the Creative Tourism Network®, Caroline Couret.
Vincent Torres explained that “unlike other projects that promote concrete tourism activities, IbizaCreativa has created a new sector“. In this regard, he thanked the members of the platform – artists, artisans, operators – who have worked for months designing specific experiences for IbizaCreativa.
Vincent Torres also stressed “the importance of the unity of all island administrations, both in the promotion and in the creation of new tourism products“.
For her part, Caroline Couret has defined Ibiza as the ideal destination to enjoy this type of experience. “Its DNA includes authentic, even mystical natural spaces, its tangible and intangible cultural heritage endures from the earliest civilizations, its creative environment inspires both local artists and people from around the world, and the creative industries have found fertile ground there to develop differentiated brands and events“. She also pointed out that, “in addition to the natural and cultural assets of the island, the added value created during the project implementation process is a differential element, both in terms of quality and specificity of the experiments, but also for the value chain that it creates at the level of the territory. “
Among the activities that we can find on the platform, there are the workshops of the members of the Association Es Juvert, located in the Handicraft Center of the Ajuntament of Ibiza, in Sa Pedrera; the music school Ibiza Blau Music; the ecological farm Can Musón; circus workshops with Circolar; the brewing workshops of Ibosim; the Botanical Garden of Fluxà Ibiza; the children’s space Espacio Magic, the Ibizan Group‘s craft and inspiration workshops; the photography workshops of Ibiza Photo Tour; a vocal coach workshop led by Brigitte Bobet; Ikebana workshops conducted by Ibiza Púnica; Mandaba Estudio‘s musical theater classes or the creative “Gimkanas” of Treasure Hunt Ibiza.
It should also be noted that the IbizaCreativa Platform will soon host new creative tourism projects!
