Save The Date: 19/09 - Creative and Cultural Industries Workshop in Plymouth

On September 19, the city of Plymouth and Plymouth College of Art are hosting a meeting in order to exchange about the Creative and Cultural Industries. The Conference of Atlantic Arc Cities, an association of cities composed by 200 local entities whose main goals are to promote the role of cities in Europe and to create projects among them, is associated to this event.
In the framework of my previous research on city branding, I have seen that you share our interest for urban innovation and sustainable creative territories.
