The Creative Knowledge Platform Methodology
The Creative Knowledge Platform (CKP), is a methodology developed by the International Traditional Knowledge Institute, US Chapter (ITKI-US), gives cities the opportunity to highlight their unique characteristics, implement a local model of promotion and leverage the UCCN Brand.
Each City can utilize three “Concepts” to attract visitors (both “Experts” and the “General Public”) and leave them with a lasting memory:
- Experience: See/Hear, Know, Try;
- Spaces: Physical, Virtual;
- Activities: Permanent, Temporary
The CKP is composed of Websites, Apps and virtual-reality environments engaging both Experts and General visitors in a simulated, expanded and extended Experience (see/hear, know and try), that guides visitors through the City’s Spaces (physical and virtual) to participate in Activities (Permanent, Temporary), even after a visit.
For Creative Cities, adopting the Creative Knowledge Platform model increases community support, awareness and engagement.
The CKP gathers and preserves information in a variety of different formats: business card, booklets, books, billboards, etc. The information collected describes the Territory itself (history, culture, places, community), its Unique Features (ingredients, recipes, processing, techniques…), the Knowledge Keepers (who knows/makes the creative products: chefs, farmers…), the Staff (restaurants cooks, farm helpers…) and the Creative Products (recipes, ingredients, artwork…) of the Territory.
