T3 symbiosis

Science, art, economics - the trinity of success

We brought together creative industry entrepreneurs, stakeholders and decision makers, students, representatives of various cultural organisations and media from the Uusimaa region to discuss the interconnectedness of art, economics, and science in the development of modern cities.

The keynote speeches were delivered by Charles Landry, the internationally renowned expert on cultural production; Professor Lotte Därso, author of Artful Creation. and Learning Tales of Arts-in-Business, Veli-Pekka Niitamo, the chairman of Nokia Oyj's and European LivingLab Portfolio activity, and Anne Stenros, Head of Design in Kone Oyj. The T3 Symbiosis seminar brought the role of arts and culture into discussion alongside science and economics as important factors in regional and urban development, commercial success and the future of the Uussimaa region and Espoo.

The T3-Symbiosis event was co-organised by the Cultural Concept Project, the City of Espoo, the Uusimaa Regional Council, the University of Art and Design Helsinki, the Helsinki Region Chamber of Commerce, and Creative Finland.The Cultural Concept project (Kulttuurikonseptihanke), of which the T3 Symbiosis was the principle event, works on developing new forms of cultural entrepreneurship and cultural tourism in the Uusimaa region.
