It aimed to explore Korea and Japan’s experiences in boosting culture and creativity and promoting cultural and creative industries (CCIs) in terms of success factors and challenges.
This workshop provided an interactive virtual platform to learn different enablers for unlocking the potentials of CCIs and delivering the triple benefits across the economic, social, and spatial dimensions.
