I-Creative International Mobility Project for Young Creatives
Project description The I-Creative Project is an international traineeship program for recent graduates (2011, 2012, 2013) in the domain of the creative industries. Flemish participants will get the opportunity to do an internship of up to 5 months in a creative company or organisation in a country of the European Union.

Flanders DC has succesfully organised previous editions of mobility programs for designers (I-POD 1, 2, 3 & 4) and I-Fashion (1 & 2).
