|| Bernd Fesel | is the Deputy Director of the European Centre for Creative Economy and was Creative Industries Advisor for the European Capital of Culture Ruhr 2010.|
For all the cities of Randstad Holland, the creative industry is an important focus. The competition between cities within Randstad Holland (RSH) implies that RSH is disregarding that the real opponents for attracting creative entrepreneurs in North-West Europe are cities like London or Paris.
Several questions that were discussed are:
- Could combining the efforts of the various cities to the RSH scale improve the international attractiveness of Randstad Holland? And if so, how can cultural clusters in these cities support this international perspective?
- How can cultural clusters and economic activity be combined to strenghen each other?
- What are the lessons from the European Capital of Culture Ruhr 2010?
