From January 12 to February 17, 2023, the Haus der Wirtschaft in Stuttgart (where FMX is also held every year) will become THE CREÄTIVE HOUSE – a hotspot for Baden-Württemberg’s cultural and creative industries. A total of 22 cultural and creative companies selected in a statewide competition will showcase their projects and works in an exhibition, accompanied by a diverse and free-of-charge supporting program.
Organized by the Ministry of Economics, Labor and Tourism and conducted in close cooperation with MFG Medien- und Filmgesellschaft Baden-Württemberg, the pop-up project focuses on cross-industry networking and exchange. Within the framework of the project, cultural professionals and creative companies from Baden-Württemberg will meet actors from business, science and politics. Individual program contributions will include insights into the work of creative professionals and future-oriented corporate design, presentations of serious games and animation and film techniques, and presentations and discussions of current trends and topics in the field of artificial intelligence and the media.
The vernissage on January 12 will be followed by Best Practice Talks, Open Stages, Salons for AI and Animation, expert contributions and much more. Click here for the complete program.
