Kreatives Chemnitz – the industry association of the cultural and creative industries Chemnitz und Umgebung e. V. was founded in 2013 to promote the acceptance and perception of companies in the cultural and creative industries. The aim is also to network companies to promote economic growth and improve working conditions in the region.
The board of Kreatives Chemnitz consists of six Chemnitz creatives. Together with the members of the association, they look after the interests of cultural and creative professionals in the city and region.
For whom and what does Kreatives Chemnitz stand up for?
Kreatives Chemnitz is committed to networking and supporting local creative professionals. The association wants to make the creative potential that is in this city visible.
Central tasks of Kreatives Chemnitz are:
- Visibility and networking
Through website, public relations and series of events, creative professionals have the opportunity to communicate their achievements and actively participate.
No matter if start-up, project implementation, financing – Kreatives Chemnitz is happy to advise.
- Creating framework conditions
We want to find out what the ideal framework conditions are for a creative and innovative working and living environment and help to implement them by advising policymakers and helping to shape them ourselves.
Kreatives Chemnitz, together with Industrieverein Sachsen 1828 e.V. and c³, is co-organizer of the annual “Maker Faire Sachsen”. Together with the city of Chemnitz, a district manager for the economy/creative economy brings together actors from the cultural and creative industries with other sectors and open spaces in the city and rents out rooms in the Chemnitz “Stadtwirtschaft”.
What distinguishes Kreatives Chemnitz?
We network, advise and shape, are companions for new ideas and open perspectives for cooperations. We advocate for more visibility and appreciation of the industry and offer networking events as well as consultations to support the cultural and creative industries in Chemnitz and the surrounding area productively and sustainably.
