Creative Café

The Creative Café is a series of talk events and workshops dealing with various themes such as film and the other creative fields of the UCCN, but also initiatives to make creativity a strategic component of urban development. It aims to review the city’s culture, provide opportunities to consider the role of culture, and develop local communities by utilizing the power of creativity.

The project has enhanced partnerships involving the public and private sectors, professionals, creators, schools, and civil society by inviting guest speakers. The past speakers included film directors, professors, writers, dancers, musicians, high school students, and even a modern-day samurai.

Since 2020, the event has taken place online, attracting participants of a wide range of age groups from around the globe.
