Research Paper: Connecting the Creative Scene of Amsterdam


This project aims to uncover, create and facilitate networks having Amsterdam as the creative playground. This study is about providing nets between the creative professionals and the creative scene of Amsterdam. A com- bination of desk research and field research gave insights on the creative scene question that lies not in the ‘direct connecting’ part of a network but in the ‘finding’ part. However there is a need to identify information about the creative scene in Amsterdam and then combine it, make it open and useful for creative professionals. Based on this information a responsive web platform was developed. This platform provides a way to creative professionals to access the creative database of Amsterdam, searching through people, organisation, places and events to in the end con- nect the creative scene of Amsterdam.

Keywords: Creative industries, Amsterdam, network, web based platform.
