Good, Better, Bureaucracy
on October 1st, from 10.00 until 12.00
Creative industries meet creative bureaucracies: As the Covid-19 crisis has demonstrated, it is high time to strengthen the public sector. When all parts of the society suffer as a consequence of lock-downs and the public-health crisis, the importance of a well-functioning public administration is more obvious than ever. Even before the Covid-19 pandemic, our society was in the midst of a dramatic transformations caused by digitalisation, the climate crisis and profound changes in the world of work, only to mention a few.
Together with the Creative Bureaucracy Festival 2020, the #ECIS2020 organises this breakout session to investigate the relations between creativity and modern public administration. We believe that good public administrations have a substantial role to play to make places and modern society work in times of transition. Good government matters! Bureaucracy is not everything, yet little can happen without bureaucracy and it needs to be revalued how to do better what it is good at – especially when implementing changes through public investments and when defining framework conditions for markets and the common good.
