Creative Footprint

THE CREATIVE FOOTPRINT (CFP) is a not-for-profit initiative that measures and indexes urban creative space. It advocates for the protection of creative space globally by gathering innovative data and uses the information to influence policy relating to the support and nurturing of urban culture.

Black Circle Media oversees all creative direction and communication for the Creative Footprint, and liaises with Red Bull on all project objectives.
