On May 29, 2018, the Secretary of State for the Economy, Francine Closener has launched Creativecluster.lu, a digital collaboration platform of the Creative Industries Cluster, in the presence of Marc Lis and Jan Glas, respectively cluster manager and president of the Luxembourg Creative Industries Cluster. The objective of the Creativecluster.lu platform is to create a close link between all professionals in the creative industry sector in Luxembourg and any other actors who request their services.
Driven by Luxinnovation, the « Luxembourg Creative Industries Cluster » aims to support the economic development of the sector which gathers industries such as architecture, crafts, visual arts, film and audiovisual production, design, fashion design, gaming, marketing and communication, literature, digital media, media publishing as well as performing arts and music.
Creativecluster.lu's ambition is to facilitate communication between the different stakeholders. The website will present job offers in the creative sector as well as calls for projects and events.
Francine Closener stated: "The introduction of the new digital platform helps to bring together and federate the actors in the creative industry and facilitates both national and cross-border collaborations with other economic areas like industry for example."
"By promoting the capacities of Luxembourg's creative actors at a national and international level, this powerful research tool will also enable companies and organizations to easily find creative products and services they are looking for in Luxembourg", said Marc Lis.
In Luxembourg, the creative industries represent more than 2,200 companies and 7,000 jobs, including a thousand independents.
This autumn will be published the first edition of the annual magazine "Do Do Do" which presents all members of the Luxembourg Creative Industries Cluster by highlighting their outstanding achievements.
