Building a Museum: Focus on Museums and Creative Industries (Conference)

Posted: Thursday, 13 July 2017

The NEMO and Creative Museum's conference 'Building a Museum: Focus on Museums and Creative Industries' will take place in Riga, Latvia on 7-9 September 2019.

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 Creative Museum, will look at how capital investments in museums in Riga contribute to the economy and social cohesion of the capital city of Latvia. Focusing specifically on museums and creative industries, it will offer a platform to discuss what works, what hinders cooperation both locally and at European scale.

The event sees 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 will be approached from the different perspectives of architects, designers and museum professionals.
