Culture can be a powerful engine for development, increasing employment and income, upgrading local talents, creating new business and direct investment to boost tourism, creative industries and territories. In this context, the principle of the creative economy can be translated as the set of actions that transform creative capital into sustainable development opportunities.

Many cities make use of their creative, touristic and educational assets in order to intensify the economy around these areas and create a favorable environment to attract new business investment and retain young talents. 
CIFAL Curitiba aims to bring together creative economy experts from Brazil and the United States to exchange best practices and knowledge about the impact of entertainment businesses in the local economy.
