Strong on potential. Strong in innovation.

As well as being an engine for innovation, the creative industries are playing a major role in the transformation, modernisation and growth of the economy. Bremen has recognised the potential of the creative economy and is driving it forward with targeted policies, strategies and activities.

The creative economy is becoming ever more important for the image of a modern city and is increasingly being recognised as a sector in its own right. It is helping to identify particular needs and trends and is addressing some of the challenges of the future. The creative industries have a big part to play in the innovation process. Around 1,800 Bremen companies are involved in the arts and the creative sector. They employ more than 10,000 people and every year generate around €760 million in revenue.
