Creative Tracks Ambassadors
To people who want to become an Ambassador:
Who qualifies to be an Ambassador?
Creative Tracks Ambassadors are contact points for a specific region or country. Ambassadors are well connected among the network of local creative entrepreneurs, as well as experienced actors in their professional field. Ambassadors are willing and able to support in networking as well as answering any questions that creative entrepreneurs might have regarding the region. Within the Creative Tracks platform, Ambassadors operate Contact Point Ideation Labs where members can get in touch, share their projects and post questions. Ambassadors are identified with a badge icon on their profile page and can be found through the search options on the Matchmaking section of the platform.
What is the role of the Ambassador?
Ambassadors are expected to promote Creative Tracks in their region and encourage local networks of young creative entrepreneurs to create a profile, make new connections and explore the benefits. The Ambassador's role is to support Creative Tracks members through the knowledge and contacts they have developed in their particular region relating to the arts sector. As a contact point you can offer advice and suggestions about the local art scene and make introductions to local contacts that might be relevant. We are not expecting you to have all the answers and hope that you might be able to direct the person to someone who might have the answer. Ambassadors can also help where there may be language barriers. How can Ambassadors use the Creative Tracks platform to carry out this role? Ambassadors are expected to actively engage with Creative Tracks members and to respond to contact requests. For this purpose, they can use the Creative Tracks platform features, in particular:
The contact point Ideation Labs: Ambassadors are asked to create an Ideation Lab for their region to serves as a “contact point” for members.
The Matchmaking tool: this allows Ambassadors to look for contacts worldwide to support the entrepreneurs who contact them.
