Creative Industries Styria
The Creative Industries Styria … What?
Creativity has potential
To be precise, economic potential. However: this potential has to be visualized. Creativity can profit economically with innovative ideas.
We live in a society of networks. The Creative Industries Styria is also a networking association: it interlinks actors of the creative scene with each other as well as with regional business partners.
The platform of the Styrian creative industry on www.cis.at is an important instrument of networking. The most important part is the data pool where all persons active in the creative sector have the opportunity to register without costs and offer their services. In this way, a continuously growing list with experts from all sectors will develop – and therewith the most important search engine of the Styrian creative industry.
“Creare“ (lat., create) is by no means an inflexible process. Creativity happens spontaneously, impulsively and with vision. And the persons behind the scene show the same characteristics: spontaneous, impulsive, visionary. They live creativity with enthusiasm and engagement, thus backing the creative community to a considerable extent.

Creative Industries … Why?
Knowledge, Capital, Society
The “creative industries“ is among the fastest growing sectors in the Styrian economy. This is not by chance as we are presently experiencing a fundamental change of social structures. The key word reads “know-how society” – “know-how” stands for the capital invested in the market by companies to make innovations marketable.
The creative industry covers a broad range of activities in various sectors: advertising, graphics, design, architecture, fashion, music and the entire media and publishing branch. Technological innovations also need creativity. The creative economy thus comprises spheres where intensive intellectual work together with technological craftsmanship results in new solutions – from creative handicraft to high-tech-engineering.
Whether realized ideas – so to say: innovations – really work out, is very rarely known by the persons concerned. High risks and possible failure are permanent partners of the creative industry. This creates the very special energy urgently needed as impulse for innovations.
