In today’s dynamic media world, creativity and innovation are inseparably integrated with technology and globalisation.

At Radboud University , we help you to develop a reflective, inquisitive and critical view of the creative industries and its relationship with ecology, climate, inclusion, democracy, and commercialism. We ask you to look beyond the promise of authenticity, the cry for value, or the quest for quality in the creative industries.

But also, and most importantly, to never lose sight of its core; the heart of the creative industries is the cultural product or event. That is why in every course, in every debate, our starting point is the aesthetical and creative element.
