Our environment is highly changing and brings us to reconsider the way we live and see the world we live in. ARKELLIA evolves towards a smarter and holistic approach involving innovative, cross-sectoral and transnational approaches, developping more engaged projects with a real sustainable mindset.

Our activities are splitted between Arkellia, focusing mainly on sustainable tourism and cultural heritage, and Arkellia Design focusing on creative and cross-sectoral projects development.

Bienvenue!

Notre environnement est en pleine mutation et nous amène à reconsidérer notre façon de vivre et de voir le monde dans lequel nous vivons. ARKELLIA évolue vers une approche plus intelligente et holistique impliquant des approches innovantes, intersectorielles et transnationales, en développant des projets plus engagés avec un réel esprit de durabilité.

Nos activités se répartissent entre Arkellia, qui se concentre principalement sur le tourisme durable et le patrimoine culturel et Arkellia Design, qui se concentre sur le développement de projets créatifs et intersectoriels.

Illustrious North – Nordisk Kulturfond

Learn more about ILLUSTRIOUS NORTH project, launched in January 2020!

ILLUSTRIOUS NORTH is a Lab concept that makes use of children illustrators work to rethink the relation between young people and their environments. It is developed based on concrete needs to foster cross-sector collaboration (bring together the experience from different sectors to identify and analyse common features, approaches and instruments; cross fertilisation of ideas between the different sectors), associating CCIs (Cultural and Creative Industries) with very diverse sectors through innovative processes such as design driven innovation (users needs satisfied through experience (meaning)) and co-creation. The ILLUSTRIOUS NORTH project is localised in the Nordic countries and builds on the capacity of the children illustration sector to generate spillover effects, by taking illustration out of the traditional book medium and into various fields such as the fashion, tourism and the alternative education worlds. For this reason ILLUSTRIOUS NORTH has been thought to operate through A PROCESS-ORIENTED activity (ILLUSTRIOUS NORTH Lab), where illustration is used as a tool that can foster alternative and innovative practices in the field of education and creativity.

We are addressing Nordic countries as they support a respectful view on childhood, represent a combination of mind openness and curiosity regarding innovation, leadership in the field of alternative education and design as well as strong roots regarding children illustration and storytelling. Nordic countries are also deeply involved with the sustainable development of their countries where very innovative research and projects are being developed and rely on the principles of the circular economy.

Creative industries

Creative industries

« The Creative Industries are the emergence of new value chains and dynamics at the intersection between knowledge, creativity and technology.
The approach relates to the paradigm of service innovation, emphasising how firms exploit new technologies in order to develop new products and services, new channels to market, new business processes,
new organisational structures and new business models. Markets are evolving, new strategic partnerships are developing and previously held concepts, such as the distinction between the manufacturing and service
sectors, are being blurred, if not overturned. »
