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.
