Summer School 2012

We kicked off the International Summer School in Cultural Economics of 2012 with a premiere for us. We organized the first edition of Cultural Industries and Creative Economy course in July. This short, five days intensive course  was the fruit of intensive work and extensive research of our staff and it provided professionals and advanced students with the latest insights into the sources and nature of creative economy. We were honored with the presence of prominent scholars such as: Arjo Klamer (Erasmus University, Rotterdam), Mariangela Lavanga (Erasmus University, Rotterdam), Lyudmila Petrova (Erasmus University, Rotterdam), Anna Mignosa (University of Catania), Gert Poppe (Maastrich University). Next to the academic faculty, experts and cultural entrepreneurs such as Udo Geerte ("I amsterdam"), Michiel de Rooij (EYE Film Institute, Amsterdam) and designers from MOOOI shared their expertise with our participants.

The culmination of the summer consisted in the 4th edition of our flag ship course The Value of Culture. We built on experience and an extensive network and attracted during th International Summer School over 30 participants from Africa, Latin America USA, Asia and Europe.  The same diversity was reflected in our faculty having as guest speakers prominent names in the creative industries but also scholars. We would like to mention here: Christian Handke (Erasmus University) , Lyudmila Petrova (Erasmus University), Priyateja Kotipalli (Erasmus University), Olav Velthuis (University of Amsterdam), Cees Langeveld (Erasmus University), Kazuko Goto (Saitama University, Kyoto), Dimiter Ganchev (deputy director, Creative Industry section,WIPO, Geneva).
