Energize & revitalize your city
The Creative Ring uses DataScouts to map and build collective knowledge about the creative ecosystem(s) of their member cities.
Contribution of stakeholders involved in the local open innovation ecosystems enables building a common knowledge base around urban innovation. The Creative Ring invites wikipedians, digital artists, local media producers, makers, fablabbers, arduinos, designers, web entrepreneurs, researchers, incubators and accelerators, directors of creative spaces and whoever is concerned about or involved in the Creative Industries to contribute to this massive mapping exercise.
A new generation of entrepreneurs and creative individuals is emerging in today’s cities. Gathered in a diverse urban “tribes”, formal and informal communities of creative people join forces in local creative ecosystems.
Open minded people embracing creativity and culture will come up with novel approaches to solve common problems as well controversial ideas, which might turn out to be the next disruptive innovation. Connecting individual actors leads to combining ideas and assets, linking opportunities, discovering crossovers and synergies. As a connected crowd, bigger goals can be reached and more impact can be generated.
By inviting creative individuals and organizations to join the Creative Ring’s ecosystem, they are encouraged to start connecting with like minded people and boost urban innovation!
