What is the Creative Clusters Union?

Today in Moscow there are 4 largest and most famous creative spaces - Winery, Artplay, Flacon and Factory. Each of the spaces has managed to develop a unique development strategy and fully implement the idea of a creative cluster. On the one hand, these clusters are independent and even rival organizations, and on the other hand, they are united by the aim to change the economy, society and reveal the creative abilities of individuals. 

That is why Winzavod, Artplay, Flacon and Fabrika announced the establishment of the Union of Creative Clusters (UCC) for the development of creative industries, effective interaction with the Moscow government, federal authorities, professional and business community. The task of the Union will be, among other things, to advise the Moscow City Government on the adequate introduction of the creative industries sector into the city economy. 

The first meeting was intended to cover the general issues of creative clusters and define the vector of further development of SKK.
