Cultural and Creative Industries (CCIs) are at the heart of the creative economy by ensuring the continued development of societies and being a powerful vector for the creation of competitiveness, cultural wealth, innovation, and employment.

Knowledge-intensive and based on individual creativity and talent, these industries generate not only considerable economic prosperity while strengthening social cohesion but are also critical to a shared sense of European identity, culture, and values.

The Spanish Presidency of the Council of the European Union will organise a European conference to reflect how the CCIs contribute to improve people’s quality of life by creating solutions through Culture and Science. This event will be held in Barcelona from the 11th to the 13th of July.

The event will display, in a demonstrative, interactive and participatory way, CCIs’ European and collaborative projects and initiatives that are not only innovative and sustainable, but also accessible, affordable, socially committed and enriching for all in line with the New European Bauhaus (NEB) initiative. In this way, the conference will show cultural and creative industries as social and innovative drivers.
