lutz leichsenring - club commissioner, berlin

Lutz Leichsenring is one of the world’s authorities on protecting creative industries. Since 2009, he has been the spokesman & executive board member for the Berlin Club Commission. He has fought tirelessly for the rights of Berlin’s vast underground club scene by organizing demonstrations, conferences, workshops & by speaking at round tables & parliamentary committees. Mr. Leichsenring focuses on the informal aspects of city life & helps grow grassroots culture as much as possible. Working to strengthen communities from the music scene, to co-working & art spaces, he is on the lookout for collaborative, sustainable & vibrant initiatives. Supporting young club- & festival managers, he identifies local tools to help protect the music & art scene while continuously looking for ways to make all participants benefit. His role with the Club commission & the Berlin Music board has even led Lutz into the city’s Chamber of Commerce, where he frequently votes on development issues that protect creative space affected by gentrification.

alan d miller - night time industries association uk

Co-founded London’s Old Truman Brewery business cultural centre and is creator of The Vibe Bar, which ran for almost 20 years on Brick Lane. Alan writes for various publications, produces and directs events & film internationally. He was on the Arts Council London for several years and is often on the radio. The Night Time Industries Association promotes the unique contribution of the night time industry to the UK. Their enormous cultural and economic contribution to the UK should be recognised - and encouraged not penalised. While they rightly champion their musical artists, fashion, film and architects - very few of the developments in the past 20 years could have happened without the direct influence and shaping by the Night Time Industries in the UK.
