A one-day forum in Estonia, consisting of curated discussions, taking place during one of Europe's most diverse city festivals Tallinn Music Week. Creativity for Change Forum brings together game-changers from business, education, science, technology, arts, culture, civil society and policy-making from more than 30 countries. The goal is to seek out ways how creativity can assist in reshaping our society. As we are on the verge of the Fourth Industrial Revolution it is crucial to engineer greater democracy, transparency, tolerance, diversity, equality and sustainable prosperity.
The world is facing unprecedented challenges today from conflicts, poverty, mass migration and environmental crises to emergence of populist movements and xenophobia.

The forum will encourage the civil society and private sector to invest and strive for values that will usher a positive transformation in our society. Artists are excellent spokespersons for these values; private companies and organizations are crucial stakeholders in the implementation. Stronger, wiser and more dynamic collaborations between civil society, private and public sectors are inevitable. Honest and respectful communication is a must.
Through rapid development of technology, we possess some of the best tools to find solutions to the challenges. If based on tolerance and equal opportunities, this will inevitably create positive change and sustainable prosperity. Our future success depends on our ability to embrace change and transformation. Our ability to adjust and to lead depends on creativity and openness – towards new ideas, cultures and concepts. Creativity, responsible entrepreneurship and individual initiatives can reshape our way of life towards greater democracy, transparency and sustainability in our governance, diversity, equality and true freedom of expression in our societies.
Democracy promises equal rights and opportunities. The best guarantee for a coherent society is a strong, creative individual, responsible private sector and civil society ready to act and disrupt. We believe it is time for us, the creative, free and independent people to face this responsibility.
