STATEMENT: Chengdu Creativity and Design Week: Welcoming global creators with a more open attitude

CHENGDU, China, Nov. 13, 2023/PRNewswire/ -- On November 11, at the 10th Chengdu Creativity and Design Week, planned and implemented by Chengdu New Dongfang Exhibition Co., Ltd., the artworks made by Italian artist Giacomo Bruni were favored by an audience with traditional Chinese ink painting skills. "I made a lot of interesting friends at the event," he noted.

Brazilian sound artist Marcelo Armani created a sound map of Chengdu capturing the voices of pandas and those of tea houses, Mount Qingcheng and the Fuqin night market, which attracted many visitors.

Chengdu, one of China's most famous historical and cultural cities, is accelerating to become a world-renowned cultural city. The city, famous for its food and pandas, is attracting more and more creative design talent from around the world. In 2023, 167 international artists from 37 countries, including Brazil, Germany, Poland, Japan, France, Canada, Latvia and Georgia, participated in Chengdu Creativity and Design Week. They stay in Chengdu, taking inspiration from the city and creating amazing works.

Meanwhile, creative design institutions and brands in Chengdu are reaching a broader platform. Mintown Studio Community, following the model of "using cultural and creative industries to stimulate urban revitalization", has expanded its presence from Chengdu to Xi'an and is in negotiations to establish settlements in Shanghai, Guangzhou, Hangzhou and Dalian. Originating from Chengdu, fashion brand 24ans has opened stores in the UK, France, Japan and cities in China including Shanghai, Guangzhou, Changsha and Qingdao.

Zora Gerault, jury member of the 2023 Golden Panda Tianfu Creative Design Award and dean of ESMOD Guangzhou, explained that she witnessed many notable works by young Chengdu designers during the event, experiencing the city's growing creativity.

"Diversity is the key to creativity. Chengdu's diversity lies in its long history and modernity, as well as its technological advances and creativity," said Imamura Yusaku, vice president of Tokyo University of the Arts and co-founder of World Design Weeks (WDW), after participating in the Chengdu Creativity and Design Week. This diversity allows Chengdu to welcome global creative design talents with a more open attitude.
