The seeds of creativity - what are the conditions for their growth?"
On February 6th 1985, about 50 people attended a talk on cultural policy by Dr Jurgen Marten, Head of the Research Institute for Cultural Policy in the German Democratic Republic Ministry of Culture. Dr Marten had particular responsibility for the theoretical basis of culture, and for the infrastructure of the GDR's Ministry of Culture and its organisations through their local authorities.
