The importance of cultural and creative industries worldwide has been increasing in recent decades. The incorporation of this issue into various strategic documents at the local and international level is also proof. At the Agency, we address this topic through the project CINEMA - Creative Industries for New Urban Economies in the Danube Region.

As part of the project, we prepared a workshop with Katarina Živanović, director of the Creative Center in Nitra. At the workshop, you will learn how the Creative Center in Nitra works, how to build the key parts of the creative center’s business plan, and how to set the conditions for the development of creative centers in cities.
