About us

The Forum on International Cultural Industries (FICI) is initiated by Peking University and strongly supported by the Ministry of Culture and the State Administration of Press Publication Radio Film and Television. Since its establishment in 2003, FICI has been successfully held for 11 consecutive years. As a non-profit academic conference, FICI is designed to provide a high-level dialogue platform for government, enterprises, experts and scholars to discuss cultural industry economy, social culture construction and other related issues, thus contributing, with the sincerest public feelings, the most rigorous academic thinking and the most exciting innovation, to peace, wisdom and prosperity in China and the world at large.

The city of Chengdu, as one of the most famous historical and cultural cities in China, has its unique cultural resources and creativity from earliest times to the present day. Under a series of industrial policy supports from Municipal Party Committee and Municipal Government, contemporary Chengdu is implementing the strategy of "Strong Cultural City" comprehensively. After the approval from Sichuan Province government, Chengdu decides to host the “2014 Chengdu Creativity Design Week” activity this year from October 1st to 14th, in order to thoroughly implement the spirit of the document from the State Council "Several Opinions on Promoting the Fusion of Cultural Creativity and Design Services with other Related Industries”. This activity will become a magnificent high-level creative design event with characteristics of both demonstration and practice. Taking this great opportunity, Chengdu City is dedicated to promoting the development of cultural creativity, design services and other new, high-end service industries, and to boost the deep fusion of cultural creativity and design service entity economy, thus upgrading the economic transformation from “Made in Chengdu” to “Designed in Chengdu”.

The Forum on International Cultural Industries (FICI) in 2014 will be held in Chengdu City on October 11th, 2014. The theme of Chengdu Creativity & Design Week is "Be Creative, Be Better” and the main academic topic of this summit is set as "Culture and Life: Social Design and Public Creativity” to initiate the discussion on the opportunities for our cultural industries’ development brought by the formation of social society and focus on how to bring vitality into creative industry by improving the connotation and aesthetics in social life.
