Workshop: Cultural Heritage and Creative City / Regional Development

The 10th CreativeCH workshop addresses the role of cultural heritage and creative industries in the development of cities and regions. 

It will be held on the 16th of September 2014 in Budapest at the Petofi Irodalmi Múzeum.

The workshop is organised in a collaboration with the Institute for Social and European Studies (ISES), Köszeg, Hungary. The Institute since 2011 holds the UNESCO Chair in Cultural Heritage Management and Sustainability, and offers a post-graduate programme that provides an interdisciplinary specialization in cultural heritage and sustainable development.

The workshop will bring together experts from Hungary and other countries, including from Creative SpIN (Spillovers of Innovation), a network of European cities funded under the URBACT programme. Creative SpIN defines and tests tools and methods to best connect cultural and creative industries with other sectors of the economy, to stimulate “creative spillovers” that contribute to innovation.

Creative Industries and Citizen Cultural Participation in Rural Multicultural Communities

The ninth project workshop took place on the 10th of April 2014 at the West University of Timisioara, Romania. The full-day programme included presentations, case studies and discussion on the relationships between creative industries, cultural heritage and rural communities. 

A special focus wason the communication of heritage of multi-ethnic communities and regions like the Banat, which spans areas of Romania, Serbia and Hungary. Methods for (re-)activating local heritage (e.g. craftsmanship, local products, music) and connecting rural communities to creative industries will be explored. 

Furthermore, going beyond a simplistic rhetoric of “diversity as richness”, issues in the participative communication of multi-ethnic cultural heritage will be discussed.
