The purpose of the Skills Chart produced by the Live Skills project is to interpret, identify and document trends and skills needs in the areas of Arts Management, Digital and New Technologies and Cultural Entrepreneurship, for professions related to the Audiovisual (AV) and Live Performances (LP) sub-sectors of the creative industries.

The skills identified are relevant to business and entrepreneurship, and necessary for AV and LP professionals to respond to new trends in the market and to understand the new working environment in their respective professions. Of equal importance are digital skills in real work conditions.
