Building On Culture - KL As A Global Creative City

Dr Tom Fleming has worked in a range of countries to advise governments in developing the Cultural and Creative (CCI) sectors of their economies. With a passion for people and places (and maps!) this geographer at heart is the director of Tom Fleming Creative Consultancy (TFFC) which is a global authority on culture and the creative industries, that has led projects in over 60 countries and 300 cities and regions. He is currently in Malaysia to prepare a strategy and action plan for the Kuala Lumpur Creative and Cultural District Master Plan (KLCCD) -  developed in 2019 between Think City and DBKL, Ministry of Tourism, Arts, and Culture (MOTAC), Department of National Heritage (JWN) and Yayasan Hasanah - with the goal to revitalise the historical district of Kuala Lumpur. Tom joins us to discuss the different conversations and collaborations that are currently underway to turn Kuala Lumpur into a global creative city, and a marketplace and hub for creative transactions.
