Creative Ports Conference
One of the bigger projects that the Danish Cultural Institute is a partner in is Creative Ports, which is a cross border partnership.
On the 6. to the 8. of September a Creative Ports Conference is being held in Szczecin, Poland by the Westpomeranian Region. Here the goal is to share knowledge and experiences of internationalization between the Baltic Sea region countries. The partners are invited to share their experiences within the field of culture and creativity in each country and organization, creating spaces for innovation and internationalization
The Creative Ports Conferences makes it possible for the countries in the Baltic Sea Region to build a collective history and create new and innovative ideas to improve the region in both culture and creativity for the future.
The aim for the Creative Ports projects is improvement and encouragement for cooperation between actors of cultural and creative industries (CCI) in the Baltic Sea Region.
Creative Ports is a projects that the Danish Cultural Institute has joined together with 13 other partners from different countries around the Baltic Sea. This project also plays a big role in the relation between Denmark and Lithuania, since we get to create new networks and share knowledge between the countries.
Creative Ports consists of 14 partners from different countries with different historical backgrounds from around the Baltic Sea. The partners consist of public authorities, business support organizations, cultural institutes and researchers who all work to promote cultural and creative industries, and amongst the partners are the Danish partners, the Danish Cultural Institute, Lifestyle and Design Cluster and Filmby Aarhus, and the Lithuanian partner, the City of Vilnius.
