The Bavarian Centre for the Cultural and Creative Industries (bayernkreativ) is the main support agency for the cultural and creative industries (CCIs) in Bavaria. Funded by the State Ministry of Economics, bayernkreativ works to help the industry thrive and strengthen its position as a key player in the German market and beyond. Offering a range of interactional formats, the Centre enables people and organisations in the field to realise their ideas and act on their entrepreneurial goals. It also coordinates activities with key stakeholders – from neighbouring agencies to trade associations to other public bodies – and forms a link between industry and the administration. As a platform, it is designed to connect, inform, qualify and inspire industry actors.
