Re-Generation by Cultural and Creative Industries

"Post-COVID-19 Regeneration is a crisis as much as a re-birth: A Renaissance of a New Type!

The Post-COVID-19 Recovery can not be successful without a sustainable regeneration on local and regional level. To unfold the whole potential of the cultural creative sectors in the years to come a major bottleneck to overcome is the capacities of communities to perform their role effectively - empowering communities as enablers of the innovation potential of the cultural creative sectors is the most pressing innovation issue of today. Creative Industries needs Creative Bureaucracies." Bernd Fesel, Director ECBN
