Culture-based creative spaces act as self-sustainable dimensions in different countries with varying level of economic development. They foster innovation and artistic practices. They strengthen communities. They promote the culture of sharing. They make neighborhoods festive. They create jobs…
There are different types of creative spaces and corresponding diversified support schemes around the world: sometimes they raise as a result of a grassroot initiative and/or develop with the support of different governmental programs. Usually, the sustainability of creative spaces provisions the commitment and direct/indirect investment of all stakeholders: state, private and civil sectors.
The aim of the Panel is to discuss the challenges and opportunities that accompany the initiation and formation of multi-disciplinary and -functional creative hubs (aka. Creative Clusters) and look through the ways government institutions, private companies and civil society can facilitate this process.
