In 2011, can Bangkok become a creative city?
TCDC invites you to explore Bangkok's development direction in the seminar "Creative City: Bangkok's Creative Potentials". How do we develop Bangkok to compliment its culture, way of life and unique identity, and in the way that encourages creative businesses to grow and thrive?
To reach a new way of changes, the seminar is held to discuss a nurturing environment for creative entrepreneurs who are the economic driving force of the city and the country, starting with a presentation of Bangkok's creative potential in term of public administration and a survey on Bangkok's fashion industry by Dr. Peeradorn Kaewlai, Chairperson of the City Research Unit and lecturer at the Faculty of Architecture and Planning, Thammasat University.
Then look deeper with case studies of creative city development provided by Stephen Pimbley, an English architect who has delivered several city landscape restructuring projects worldwide. Next, Bertram Schultze will discuss how he reinvented century-old factories in former East Germany into a famous art and cultural complex "Spinnerei" which attracts visitors from all around the world.
