International Workshop: Organizing Creativity in the City: Actors and Practices in Russia and Europe

October 9, 2013, 19.00

Centre for German and European Studies, St. Petersburg State University (Universitetskaya nab. 7/9 St. Petersburg)

Centre for German and European Studies together with the Research & Study Group ‘Creative city: reformatting the public space’ (National Research University – Higher School of Economics at St. Petersburg) invite you to participate in the International Workshop on the topic: “Organizing Creativity in the City: Actors and Practices in Russia and Europe”

The issues around creativity in the urban context have gained great interest among researchers and policy-makers. However, the usual discourses on creativity in the city are tools for positioning and marketing used by government institutions; what has not received due attention is the consideration of urban creativity from the inside – concrete practices of creative actors, networking, place embeddedness, etc. This workshop aims to fill this gap and takes a bottom-up perspective on the organization of the creative process taking place within artistic communities, creative spaces and creative enterprises.

During the workshop, researchers from St. Petersburg and Barcelona will give their presentations and draw comparisons across the contexts.
