NEW MEANINGS IN BUSINESS: Rethinking the Paradigm of Creative Mind

International Space of Development
June 1– 3, 2018, LIZARI CAMPUS (Latvia)

About event:

We cordially invite you to deeply explore the NEW PARADIGM OF CREATIVE MIND in the unique International Space of Development gathering intellectual leaders
from business - marketing - science - fashion - design - art  from various countries.


  • The idea of the forum is to look deeper and wider to understand HOW and WHY we do not CREATE NEW as businesses and individuals:
    • how our creative attempts turn into stereotypes of mass - economy,
    • why we follow others instead of developing our true uniqueness,
    • why we say "everything has already been created",
    • why sometimes happens that we do this unconsciously,
    • what does the true creativity means,
    • what is the difference between marketing-driven and people-centered creativity,
    • how to find inspirations for ideas of new quality,
    • what are business cases based on creativity of new quality, etc.

  • We are going to have deeper insights (anthropology, psychology, economics, semiotics) on the meaning, role and formation of CREATIVE MIND including challenges of consumer economy and insights for the future

  • We are going to EXPERIENCE PERSONALLY changes needed to develop creative mind on personal and business levels
