Creative powers for Europe

22 november, 2016 - 09:30 - 17:30

The cultural and creative industries (CCIs) represent an incredible force for innovation. Culture and humanism are essential in tackling Europe’s current challenges. In Sweden, and elsewhere in Europe, great efforts have been made to strengthen the CCIs. However, there is still more to be done and we are convinced that together, we can learn from each other and take further steps. This day aims to strengthen cooperation and promote the process of the cultural and creative sectors by bringing up creative ideas towards sustainability.

Join us for engaging panel discussions, workshops, talks, new collaborations and truly inspirational examples of best-practices from across Europe. You will meet thought-leaders, government representatives, regional and national policymakers, as well as other key players and influencers in culture, education, environmental policy and more, from Sweden and across Europe.

The ideas will be summarized and documented and will hopefully continue to grow and be realized. It is time to really incorporate culture into environmentally, economically and socially sustainable development.


The number of participants is limited to 300 persons. Since we strive for a geographical and organisational balance amongst the participants, we will send you a final confirmation of your participation by September at the latest.

Creative Powers for Europe is a European idea convention organised by the national and regional authorities, the Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth, the Swedish Arts Council and Region Skåne, for discovering new ways to support cultural and creative industries in contributing to the social, economic and environmental values.
