Where the Creative Industries and Tech Collide


The creative industries contribute over £100 billion to the UK economy each year. It’s a vibrant sector split between those that have thrived digitally and those that have been badly hit by lockdown. How can tech help creative organisations? And how can creativity help tech ones? Join us as we explore the greenshoots that exist for landmark creative organisations and how one leading business is embedding creativity in its processes and products. And we’ll be hearing from those working to implement the £1.57 billion Cultural Recovery Fund.

MC for the day : Eleanor O’Keeffe, Editorial Director for CogX
