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.
