⁠Gorky Park will host the first ever Russian Creativity Week — a key national event in creative industries — from 11 to 13 September. Leaders from 14 industries that make up the ‘creative industries’ concept according to the international classifications — art, music, fashion, design, architecture and urban studies, cinema, television, new media, publishing and journalism, marketing, computer graphics, development games, IT, and specialized education — will get together in the very heart of Moscow. Russian Creativity Week will feature more than 700 events and 500 speakers over a period of three days. The event will be attended by residents of Moscow, St. Petersburg, Nizhny Novgorod, Perm, and other regions of the Russian Federation.

Part of the Russian Creativity Week programme is being assembled under the supervision of international experts, including MusicAeterna conductor and artistic director Teodor Currentzis, head of the Player One game media project Anton Gorodetsky, and prominent fashion and clothing designer Tatyana Parfyonova.

In addition to an extensive educational and entertainment programme, Russian Creativity Week will include a business forum at which representatives of the government, business, and the creative community will discuss issues related to the development of the potential of the creative economy. The forum will be attended by 50 residents from foundations, museums, clusters, and public associations.

Gorky Park will serve as the venue of Russian Creativity Week in Moscow. The country’s most prominent park will have sites for thematic lectures, a main stage, a film festival, and a literature festival. The architectural plan of Russian Creativity Week fully meets the requirements of the Federal Service for Surveillance on Consumer Rights Protection and Human Wellbeing.

Russian Creativity Week is being held based on instructions given by Russian President Vladimir Putin on 2 November 2019 to provide state support for modern popular music and contemporary visual art. The event aims to reveal the creative and economic potential of the Russian creative community.
