An international conference on urban development and the information society15 - 16 August 1996
How can cities develop innovation strategies and promote urban creativity? How will information and communication systems influence social structures, and how might they change the way we live? What kind of interaction can we expect between cultural and technological innovation? Can we create cities for a society that is innovative and meaningful, and is design able to harness the synergy of different disciplines?
The Creative City follows up the themes of the successful Gateway II conference that took place at the University of Art and Design Helsinki UIAH in September 1995. It is a multi-disciplinary conference addressing problems and issues in the fields of social and cultural studies, information technology, art, design and architecture in relation to the process of bringing the welfare state in step with the "information society". A special aim of the conference is to introduce urban innovation and creativity to the sphere of public sector decision making.
