Creative Entrepreneurship for Competitive Economy
Date: 19 – 21 October 2011
Venue: Tallinn, Estonia – European Capital of Culture 2011
A call for a paradigm shift in the way creative economy is understood and supported. The creative economy is widely recognised as a provider of growth to the whole economic sphere and a contributor of added value to a range of agendas. Indeed, multiple nations, regions and cities have invested substantially in creative economy strategies and programmes, with aims that range from creating jobs and attracting investment to building confidence and embedding creativity throughout other sectors – even across society as a whole.
Yet after the financial crisis, many are calling for a re-think on the role and value of creative economy and for a sharper and more nuanced approach to policy and strategy. This includes a refreshed approach to how we support creative entrepreneurs, a radical reappraisal of the relationship between culture and economy, and a more targeted agenda that calls for cities and regions internationally to develop creative economy strategy on their own terms.
Tom Fleming Creative Consultancy has been invited by the Estonian Government to produce and moderate the conference – leading the debate and bringing together creative thinkers, policy makers and creative entrepreneurs from across the world.
Join the debate at this major international conference as we discuss the role and value of Creative Entrepreneurship for the Creative Economy.
