Creative Industries Festival

5 years

of Artcor

FIC traditionally celebrates the diversity and beauty of creative industries in the first week of June. This year marks the 5th edition of the festival, coinciding with the 5th anniversary of Artcor.

And because we're in a jubilee year, we aim to amplify the impact of the event by integrating it into our 5-year story of exploring and promoting creativity.

At FIC, we will continue to explore current trends and topics for the industry, discuss technologies and their impact on creators/creations, connect the community,
invite successful models both locally and internationally to inspire artists in the country, position Moldova as a regional hub for creativity and talent, and promote Creative Moldova.

Join us to participate and enjoy this festival, as well as celebrate together the 5 years of Artcor - a period during which we've built bridges between artists and art-loving audiences, providing an efficient platform for expression and connection.

The Creative Industries Festival is organized by the Artcor Creative Industries Center under the patronage of the President of the Republic of Moldova, Maia Sandu.

The event is held with the support offered by the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Moldova, the Investment Agency, the Technologies of the Future Project, financed by USAID, Sweden and Great Britain, as well as the Moldcell Foundation.
