About workshop OUR MISTO!
The goal of the workshop OUR MISTO! is to follow up on the initial discussions in Uzhgorod and find the strategic framework for both cultural and urban development of the City.
MISTO! has invited experts from different fields to explain and share how they are creating successful stories, strategies and what really matters in developing successful cities and places.
Workshop will be about how talent can contribute to the success of cities. How it can help to create ‘city image’ and how cities can help creativity to flourish and grow.
Two days about culture, creativity and urban development
Conference MISTO! in Uzhgorod is focused on up-to-date topics in culture and creative industries and urban development led by cultural and creative endeavour.
Culture and Creative industries are getting more and more to the center of the general strategies for Cities and their development. Culture production plays important role as competitive advantage for positioning cities as hubs in their regions and countries as well on international level.
Uzhgorod with its strategic position on ukrainian western border is the gate to EU and part of the Europe which is seeking new collaborations and partnerships with Ukraine and its cultural, creative and economical potential.
Today more than 50% of world population lives in urban areas and so cities are getting more more into the center of interest. They are key drivers for national economies. Talent and activite of citizens, cultural organisations, free artistic expression and design of public space contribute to better and positive development of the urban areas and so to the overall perfomance of the nations.
