    PLACE!

    International Conference on Creative industries and City image
    Date: 3rd - 4th October 2013
    Venue: Kasarne/KulturPark, Kukučínova 2, Košice, 04001, Slovakia

    ABOUT:
    The now over used term „creativity" and the concept of „the creative city" are often just empty words in a PR brochure, frequently used by city marketing departments to brand their city as the most creative ever. But is there any substance in and justification for many of these claims?
    „Creative Class" with its „Creative Industries" in „Creative Cities" are now fashionable terms all around the world, but can you really say that place you live in is creative and do you really think creative industries could solve the economical or social problems of your city?
    What is really essential for prosperous and imaginative places? Can your city be one of those lucky ones where the economy is growing, talent is nurtured, there is a culture of creativity and there are few urban or social problems?
