Creative milieus in Kassel

Due to deindustrialisation and demographic changes, the city of Kassel has to face a transformation process, that requires new approaches for urban development. Intelligently linking the cultural economy with urban development hence plays an important role, for it generates possibilities for spatial development beyond the bounds of traditional urban planning. Urban Catalyst investigates creative milieus’ development potential, as exemplified by case studies, and thereby identifies strategic approaches to accommodating the cultural and creative economies, and to their long-term integration in urban development processes.
