Introducing the Tallinn Manifesto - a Tool for Strategic Development across the Creative Economy

TFCC is proud to announce the publication of the Tallinn Manifesto - the product of a major international conference on Creative Entrepreneurship - held in Tallinn in October 2011 (programmed and facilitated by TFCC). The Manifesto has been co-created by delegates and speakers at the conference - with 25 nationalities represented overall. The Manifesto was written by Tom Fleming.

With the economic crisis, plus crises in confidence and identity, we need a rethink on the role and value of the Creative Economy and a refreshed approach to policy and strategy. The purpose of the Tallinn Manifesto is therefore to provide a stimulus and focus for debate, which then develops as a driver for strategy and action across the world.
