Creative Central Asia, our annual conference series for the cultural economy. This year we organise this event in partnership with Art and Culture Development Foundation under the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Uzbekistan

On 22 and 23 November leaders from across the region’s creative sector will come together again with UK counterparts for the third Creative Central Asia leadership conference which will be held in Tashkent, Wyndham Hotel. The delegates will continue the dialogue, review progress and push the cultural and creative economy agenda forward.

Although the conference vision, objectives and scale will stay broadly the same for Creative Central Asia 2019, this year’s conference will differ from last year’s in terms of participant mix, focal themes for discussion whilst retaining its focus on practical action eg. through development and use of frameworks for action, provision of supporting toolkits etc.

For continuity and learning, a number of last year’s most dynamic participants will be invited back although the majority of this year’s participants will be new, in order to increase the size of the leadership network.
