Socio-Cultural Projects: TETRA as a New Mechanism for Developing Creative Industries and Public-Private Partnerships
2 June 2021
In the era of scientific and technological transformations, mass digitalization, and the growing role of intellectual property, creative industries are becoming one of the most important areas for the development of the economy and society. By combining production in heritage (artistic and traditional crafts, museum and library science, etc.), culture and art, IT and digital, media, fashion, architecture, and creative research and development, creative industries identify new types of socioeconomic interaction and contribute to the success of territorial development. The location factor also plays an important role in the development of creative industries. Territories that are home to folk arts and crafts offers unique potential, where the ‘code of creativity’ has been established both historically and genetically. A substantial portion of Russia’s tangible and intangible heritage is located in such territories, where the majority of historical expertise, such as the artistic processing of metal, wood, glass, stone, ceramics, and bones, the art of embroidery, lace-making and much more, is concentrated. If such expertise is supplemented with modern expertise (IT, fashion, design, etc.), this will give a powerful impetus to the development of creative industries and the territories themselves that are the main keepers Russia’s ‘cultural code’. The creation and development of creative and industrial tourism clusters will help to organize a creative community.
What are some of the special aspects of setting up creative clusters based on historically established creative communities? How does the TETRA project (territories for the preservation and development of traditions and way of life) contribute to the creation of unique modern products in heritage-based creative industries? What forms of support are there for entrepreneurial activities in the territories? What are successful examples of public-private partnerships in the development of creative industries?
