Kreatives Leipzig e. V. (Creative Leipzig, registered association) has been founded in 2010 as a network and interest group for Leipzig’s creative industries. It is a grassroots organisation, meaning that it has been constituted and is run solely by volunteers who are actually working in the sector, different to many other creative industry networks across Europe which have been set up by local municipalities or marketing initiatives.
Membership in the association is open to anybody working in the creative industries (music, film, design, advertisement, literature, performing arts, visual arts, media, broadcasting, software, games and/or architecture). Most of the association’s members are promoters of very small businesses, which is characteristic for the setting of creative industries in Leipzig. In many projects, the association works in partnership with the urban area’s public bodies.
The organisation realises a number of activitities which include events where relevant information is shared or themes of interest for creative workers are discussed, projects where different members and other collaborators work together, and lobbying activities to raise awareness for the challenges faced in the sector.
