The CreateSmart Initiative (CSI) was established by the Government in June 2009 to promote and speed up the development of local creative industries so as to build Hong Kong into Asia’s Creative Capital. The CSI aims at providing financial support to projects conducive to the development of creative industries in Hong Kong. It is administered by the Create Hong Kong (CreateHK).
The CSI will fund projects with objectives that are in line with our strategic directions to drive the development of the creative industries, namely:
1) Nurturing talents and facilitating start-ups;
2) Exploring markets; and
3) Promoting cross-sectoral and cross-genre collaboration; and
4) Promoting Hong Kong as Asia’s creative capital and fostering a creative atmosphere in the community.
