Home for ideas – creative minds, the city and planning
Monday, July 28 | 6 p.m.
Osthang campus: hall
» a guest event hosted by Cluster für Kreativwirtschaft Hessen e.V. (CLUK)
Creative quarters are the artists’ colonies of the 21st century. They are the force that is considered to drive urban development. In some places, districts that are shaped by subcultures are receiving support, and industrial brownfields where artists have settled down are being maintained. Here and there homes for creative minds are being created. Cluster für Kreativwirtschaft Hessen (CLUK) is promoting a pilot project that is destined to serve as a role model for similar homes for the creative industry in Hessen. The reason: Initiatives like these that promote the creative industry have been far and few between in the Rhine-Main region to date. So why is that? Would it be a good idea if urban developers viewed the creative industry as an integral part of the urban society, whose requirements have to be met at the level of the city as a whole? A debate with case studies.
