what to expect?

The conference is organized by Antwerp Management School, the University of Antwerp and HKU University of the Arts (Utrecht).

The conference taps into three trends within the cultural and creative industries (CCIs) currently being discussed and the (changing) dynamics between them:

  • entrepreneurship,
  • the urban environment and
  • the role of creative, innovative and educational knowledge institutions.

This scientific conference will address various sectors of the arts and cultural industries (performing arts and festivals, heritage, museums and visual arts, film production and distribution, book publishing, recording, broadcasting, audiovisual media and multimedia, design).

The conference speakers will be presenting their research activities and research articles as well as theoretical/conceptual papers that engage with pertinent questions and issues in depth from a pedagogical, sociological, cultural, political, economic, philosophical and/or ethical standpoint reporting on case studies or developments within these three topics.
