Vysokovsky Graduate School of Urbanism is an independent learning and research division of the National Research University Higher School of Economics. Founded in 2011, the School takes a multidisciplinary approach towards studying and planning modern cities, using the excellent foundation that one of Russia’s top universities has formed in the humanities and socioeconomics. The School’s mission is to create a centre in Russia for learning and research in urban studies and urban planning. It is envisioned that this centre will respond to the needs of the 21st century city and the corresponding era of megacities that are home to tens of millions of people with diverse interests and aspirations. These are cities where sources of information grow and the space for civil, creative, and economic opportunities expands. From 2016 the School is officially named in honor of its first dean and one of the founders — Alexander Vysokovsky (1948-2014).

The HSE Graduate School of Urbanism kindly invites you to meet Roel van Herpt, strategist and founder of Agency Agency in the Netherlands. On 19 July he will give a lecture at the Dostoevsky Library on creative spaces in the city and experience of Amsterdam.
As cities are becoming increasingly attractive, they are also becoming less affordable for modest earners. Artists and creatives – those who typically contribute to the liveliness and diversity of cities – are among those who struggle to find places to live and work in the city.
For over five years, Roel van Herpt has been advising the City of Amsterdam on a program for ateliers and creative spaces. In the program, the city stimulates real estate organizations to develop affordable workspaces and residencies for artists and creative professionals. In doing so, the city aims to attract and retain creative talent, to stimulate diversity in the city and to remain a vibrant place for people to live and work.
During his talk, Roel van Herpt will present and discuss Amsterdam's program for creative spaces, what works well and what should be improved, and what other cities like Moscow can learn from it.
Roel van Herpt is strategy director and founder of Agency Agency, a Dutch practice for strategy and design. Both a strategic and creative consultancy, Agency Agency combines expertise in strategy development, design direction, communication strategy, identity design, business planning and project development. With this unique set of skills, Agency Agency assists governmental organizations, art institutes, brands and design studios in developing and realizing projects with a lasting impact.
Besides leading Agency Agency, Roel van Herpt is a member of the Creative Industries Fund NL advisory committee on digital culture and a cultural innovation advisor for the AFK Amsterdam Fund for the Arts. He also leads Reality Check, a professional development program at the DesignLAB department of Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam and at the Interior Architecture and Furniture Design department of KABK Royal Academy of the Art in The Hague. Roel van Herpt holds an MSc in Strategic Management and an MA in Creative Development.
The lecture is organized with the support of the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
