On October 10th100 participants joined THE ARTS+ Innovation Summit: The Bigger Picture - How can the cultural and creative sectors bride the innovation gap? to discuss barriers standing between the creative and cultural sector and innovation. The NEMO Working Group Museums and Creative Industries took part in break-out session one on cultural heritage and break-out session three, which focused on the “bigger picture”.

Raivis Simansons, Think Tank Creative Museum (Latvia) and member of the Working Group Museums and Creative Industries, moderated a round-table on the topic of necessary expertise for long-term innovation. At the end of the Innovation Summit, the European Manifesto on Supporting Innovation for Cultural and Creative Sectors was presented. The Manifesto was presented to the public the next day at a press conference.

Before the press conference, the Working Group members visited the Historical Museum in Frankfurt, where they got to learn more about the museum’s collaboration with creative industries. Curator Katharina Böttger introduced the participants to the Frankfurt Now! exhibition and to the City Labs.
