Creativity week radi!2017

Creativity week radi!2017 with a rich programme of around 24 events took place in Latvia in autumn 2017. The aim of Creativity Week is to highlight the local ideas, talents, achievements, as well as the potential of creative and culture industries and their interaction with other sectors. Moreover, radi! events were also organised outside Latvia, gathering representatives of creative industries and promoting international experience exchange.

The main directions of radi!2017 were the following: Interaction of creative industries and other sectors, emphasising their potential and involvement in progressive and innovative entrepreneurship in the context of the development of social well-being, life quality and urban environment of the Baltic sea region; Design thinking methods and an interdisciplinary approach in public administration management and education processes, promoting the future of Latvia based on a knowledge economy and creating a working environment together, which focuses on citizens’ needs, as well as active involvement of regional inhabitants, minorities and youth, thus implying an idea that each inhabitant of Latvia is part of the state-creation process and thus focusing on the idea of participation, promotion of interests and strengthening of dialogue.
