A new platform aimed at realizing the economic potential of Russia’s creative industries launches today in Gorky Park. Aligning with the UN’s International Year of Creative Economy for Sustainable Development, Russian Creativity Week will host over 500 events, including a business forum, lectures, masterclasses, installations and performances.

Visitors will encounter 14, creative discipline-themed pavilions in Gorky Park, each curated by a leading industry figure, including: V-A-C co-founder/director Teresa Iarocci Mavica; conductor Teodor Currentzis; Belgrade Design Week founder, Jovan Jelovats; art curator Nikolay Palazhenko; and TV presenter Vladimir Pozner.

Chairman of Russian Creativity Week and Director of the Presidential organizing committee for Public Projects, Sergei Novikov, noted: “We have big ambitions to open up the lines of communication with the international creative community and are delighted to be forming partnerships with other countries where such events are held.”

One of the main events will be the business forum, where representatives of government, business and the creative community will discuss the development of the creative economy, from creating galleries and developing games to the phenomenon of new media.
