Museum as a catalyst for creativity and growth, a key factor in a larger regeneration plan? Museums have been playing a central role in the regeneration game of the cities, at least since the (Guggenheim) Bilbao effect. This NEMO event, together with NEMO's partner Think Tank Creative Museum, looked at how capital investments in museums in Riga contribute to the economy and social cohesion of the capital city of Latvia. The focus on museums and creative industries was explored through practical approaches to the topic with visits to the Riga Motor Museum, the Latvian National Museum of Art, Zanis Lipke Memorial and the Latvian National Museum of History. In these locations, the concepts of the museums were approached from the different perspectives of architects, designers and museum professionals.
