Cultural and Creative Enterprises: scenarios and global markets


In the Italian innovation capital, on 19 and 20 May we will be present at BASE Milano, a creative innovative  hub and one of Italy’s most ambitious social and cultural entrepreneurship projects. The topic on the agenda will be cultural and creative enterprises, and the discussion, conducted with the participation of international institutions and organisations, will focus on the  analysis of experiences, ideas and projects in the areas of cultural proposals and the management of cultural resources. Many speakers from foreign institutions will participate in ArtLab 16, to explore the opportunities, the prospects and the sources of credit available to European cultural and creative enterprises.

The program includes conferences, workshops and networking sessions, where companies, professionals, cultural operators, public institutions and international networks will be able to exchange ideas on the themes of creativity, sustainability and policies for the cultural industries.
