The newsletter of the european centre for creative economy (ecce) in Dortmund informs about debates and positions of the Cultural and Creative Industries in Germany and Europe.

We address  current issues at the crossroads of cultural, economic and city policies that initiate social changes – or react to these – and depict new perspectives: culture and creative industries are drivers for social change. They have to be supervised politically, shaped and can be experienced concretely on site.  The initial point for ecce is the Ruhr region in the tradition of the capital of culture RUHR.2010, understood as an empty space in the sense of Karl Ernst Osthaus „Change through Culture — Culture through Change“.
