Exploring Opportunities for Internationalization in Thessaloniki

The creative and agricultural sectors are both strongly represented in the Greek city of Thessaloniki. Nevertheless, there seems to be no interaction whatsoever between the two. Creativity Platform sees huge potential for collaboration between these two sectors. In collaboration with Pakhuis de Zwijger in Amsterdam, it is conducting an initial exploration of opportunities by specifically looking at the design of packaging for agricultural products and their marketing.

Collaboration across sectors is nothing new in the Netherlands, as we see from the example of the 'Agri meets Design' programme during Dutch Design Week 2013 (19-27 October). For this exploratory study, Creativity Platform will organize an event in which Dutch and Greek designers can meet one another and develop and share ideas with the agricultural sector in both countries.
These events form an initial exploration that will pave the way for an enduring collaboration between the creative industries and agricultural sectors in the Netherlands and Greece.
