Tom Fleming has written a 'think piece' on how partners across the three Baltic states of Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia can operate as a major centre for the development of the creative economy.
The article, "Developing a Creative Economy in the Baltic Region: Challenges & Opportunities" features in the September 2010 publication of the Creative Industries in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, funded by the Estonian Ministry of Culture. It aims to open up a policy debate about the drivers of the Creative Industries in the Baltic Region, and to understand the opportunities and challenges facing the sector.
"The Baltic region, with its diverse and youthful countries, has already made significant progress in nurturing its creative industries and developing a broader creative economy. Indeed, with each of the region's capital cities hosting the European Capital of Culture title over a five year period, awareness of the region is at an all time high."
