Art Stage Singapore 2016 – Southeast Asia Forum: The Great Creative City Race – Can Creativity Save the City?
11:00 to 12:30

Venue: Marina Bay Sands Expo & Convention Centre, Level 3, Angsana Room 3E and 3F, 10 Bayfront Ave

“The ‘creative city’, in the last two decades, has been popularly billed as a solution to urban renewal and to sustaining the vitality of cities. Today it is a paradigm representing the city of the future. Cities are investing millions to develop innovation and creative thinking in urban planning and design, business, science, technology, even in art, culture and social behaviour, in the bid to distinguish themselves as economic dynamos and interesting places to live.

Thought leader Andy C. Pratt (Professor of Cultural Economy at the Department of Culture and Creative Industries, City University London), Berlin’s Permanent Secretary for Cultural Affairs, Tim Renner (formerly a music producer, writer and journalist), and moderator Lorenzo Rudolf (Founder and President of Art Stage Singapore, and, a former Director of Art Basel and Frankfurt Book Fair) discuss how creativity is faring as a ‘new economy’ and what lies ahead for the creative city.”
