Creativity is a key source of growth and productivity for the UK economy. Join us for a day of insightful discussions and virtual networking with key stakeholders from the creative and cultural industries, Higher Education and Arts Council England as we explore the opportunities and challenges of working across traditional boundaries.
Our speakers will reflect on a broad range of contemporary issues; from what it takes to be an effective cultural leader in a rapidly changing world, to the importance of valuing creativity within traditional organisations.
It is a day set to be full of creative collisions, innovation, entrepreneurship and most importantly inspiration!
If you are a creative freelancer, entrepreneur or simply looking for some insights into the latest thinking in the Creative Economy, then join us for this free online event hosted by The Bridge as part of the iMayflower project.
The online creative collisions day comprises ten 30 minute discussions facilitated by Jo Loosemoore, Curator and Content Producer (Mayflower 400 and BBC).
