The focus on creativity and human capital is essential to develop a modern and competitive economy. The specificity of the creative economy with its transversal logic -interdisciplinary, trans-sectorial - where everything is related, calls for a new approach of development and experience exchange between the different sectors. experimentadesign initiates a series of symposia dedicated to this theme, looking to boost the spirit of initiative and entrepreneurship of Portuguese players.
Organized in collaboration with the British Embassy in Portugal and Trade&Investment UK, this first symposium features among its guest speakers Sir John Sorrell
, President of the London Design Festival and President of The Sorrell Foundation. The event brings together dozens of participants from different areas within the creative industry, from 3 main countries: Brazil, United Kingdom and Portugal.
Case studies, successful and unsuccessful projects, examples of hubs and creative clusters are examined in the format of discussions, presentations and workshops. The methods and barriers of the creative process in the face of social innovation will also be the subject of discussion, as well as its relationship with industry and influence in the socio-economic development.
