Copenhagen Conference: The future of the creative industries

Monday 25th October 2010 9.00-18.00 the Nordic Council of Ministers will be hosting the conference KreaNord, at Børsen, 1217 Copenhagen, Denmark.

KreaNord is an important initiative in improving the framework conditions of the creative industries in the Nordic countries and in strengthening the Nordic region’s position as a creative region. The aim of the conference is to further collaboration between the different initiatives of the Nordic countries and to establish a forum for debate and exchange. The focus is on three policy-initiatives:
• Promote strategic collaboration and exchanges within the Nordic cultural and creative industries and with other sectors for value creation, innovation and growth
• Promote new opportunities for access to global markets, financing, and attraction of foreign investments for the Nordic cultural and creative industries
• Promote culture and creativity in Nordic education at all levels and promote entrepreneurialism and business skills in cultural and artistic education

This will be an opportunity to debate and network with the speakers of the conference and its approximately 300 participants including politicians and government officials from the Nordic Region’s Ministries of Culture and Ministries of Economic and Business Affairs, business and industry organizations, and key figures from the creative industries. In addition, the Nordic Ministers of Economic and Business Affairs and Ministers of Culture are invited to participate in the conference. The conference thus brings together people from the forefront of the creative industries, the educational system, and policy makers of the Nordic countries for a day of discussion and key note speeches.

The conference is conducted in English. Speakers include:
Professor Dominic Power, Uppsala University
Managing Director Heikki Masalin, CIM Creative Industries
