Cities in the US and Europe are facing similar challenges: integration, immigration, post-industrial fall out, unemployment and economic inequality among others.  Social tensions created by these challenges can result in violence and further degradation of the social fabric.  City leaders are increasingly turning to the transformative impact of the arts, activating the creative economy to in turn serve as a catalyst for innovation, entrepreneurship and invention.  In this panel we will hear from EU and US cities who have successfully applied this approach, reinventing their cities through culture and tech.
