Creative Footprint (CFP) is a data-driven research project by nighttime consultancy agency VibeLab that studies creative spaces and communities to examine the cultural value and impact of music and nightlife in the city.
Our methodology goes beyond economic impact, prioritising original content, interdisciplinary connections, and cross-functional spaces for thriving local scenes.
Since its founding in 2017, CFP has been conducting community-based and collaborative venue mapping in Berlin, New York, Tokyo, Stockholm Montreal and Sydney, including music spaces, clubs, galleries, and informal creative spaces. The goal of Creative Footprint is to show the value of spaces that foster talent, strengthen communities and make our cities unique.
