Creative Economy. Creativity and Innovations as Drivers for Growth

#Round table #Transformation of Urban Economy and Business
02 July
Altair Hall
For a long time, creative industries have been associated mainly with the cultural sector. Creative industries include publishing, cinematography, TV, radio, IT, software development, architecture, design, performing arts and more. Today, however, creative industries are a fast-growing part of the urban economy. The development of creative clusters and government support for these creative industries help create new jobs, growth opportunities for new, create competitive advantages, and attract investment. More and more social infrastructure facilities are emerging in modern cities, and this has a positive impact on citizens' well-being in addition to providing access to cultural activities and employment in creative industries. During the session, experts will discuss how to effectively develop the creative sector and what measures of state and private support are necessary for this.
  • How can cities increase exports of creative services? What regulatory mechanisms are needed to support creative entrepreneurs?
  • How does digitalization affect the development of creative industries? What will the future of the creative economy look like? How can the creative economy be rebuilt after the pandemic?
  • How do creative spaces shape the urban environment? What kind of investment is needed to modernize creative spaces?
  • How can interactions between creative industries and big business – particularly developmental companies and the art industry – influence urban environmental development and boost economic activity?
