The MoC pays a particular attention to engaging civil society in policy making and policy discussion processes, including awareness raising. The main areas of civil society participation in cultural policy processes are: legislative and policy drafting, implementation and monitoring, voluntary work, charity and philanthropy, cooperation between state, local governments, businesses and NGOs, delegation of policy implementation functions to NGOs. Amongst other awareness raising activities carried out by the MoC one can mention the Creativity week “radi!” (www.radilatvija.lv) organized by the MoC and the British Council as the initiators and other ministries, organizations, institutions, NGO sector and businesses as national and international partners. The aim of “radi!” as a social movement is to create public interest and understanding in of the development of the CCI and their interplay with other sectors such as education that promotes creativity, innovative business and wise governance, all the while absorbing the best international experience, following the latest trends and highlighting Latvia’s achievements. Held for the 6th year in Latvia, “radi!” promotes cross-overs of cultural and creative sectors to other areas and multidisciplinary co-creation for innovation making. Numerous events such as conferences, seminars, discussions, workshops, think thanks, showcases, performances and other format activities of collaborative thinking, work and creative endeavors are held within “radi!”. Word “radi” in Latvian has two meanings: “relatives” and “create”. In 2015 “radi!” was the platform for various key policy discussions and conferences during the Latvian Presidency in the Council of the EU. The main “radi!” activities in 2016 are scheduled in May, but preparatory and following activities all over Latvia are held throughout the year, with the simultaneous planning for 2017 and 2018, especially when Latvia will celebrate its Centenary.
