This Friday at 12 pm, Lutz Lechsenring (Co-founder of VibeLab, Nighttime.org, Spokesperson for Club Commission) is joined by Ronny Krieger, General Manager Europe for Patreon in Berlin, Sandria Blas, Senior Curator & Researcher at Factory Berlin and Julia Köhn from Germany’s Federal Government’s Center for the Cultural and Creative Industries, to discuss the power of creative communities.
The creative community and its relation to individual creativity and the social purpose of a creative network. Creativity is a way of living life that embraces originality and makes unique connections between seemingly disparate ideas.
The most creative people find ways around obstacles because they see them not just as roadblocks but also as opportunities. Working in a creative community makes life infinitely interesting and fulfilling. Whether we are talking about online collaboration platforms or personal interaction at the same physical location, the exchange of ideas and creations, the combination of different talents and mindsets, as well as interaction with fans and supporters can spark innovation, avoid loneliness, increase bonds and boost creative output.
The discussion will explore what is meant by the individual power to create, and the value that creative communities can add both in terms of their work and a broader social purpose.
