Leipzig's IT, media and creative scene depends on a number of places where creativity is transformed into a creative economy. These are breeding grounds where actors can implement and develop their ideas alone or in a network. Here is where people think they have failed, but then rise up from these assumed failures stronger and ready to push on. In these places, individuals and creative people can take their first steps towards self-employment. Established venues that have retained their dynamism and verve despite their high profile. Undoubtedly, there are many other places in our city. Hence, the locations introduced exemplify the potential and dynamics of Leipzig.
