This event shares insights from students, practitioners and researchers about ways to support enterprise development in the creative and cultural industries. The lab brings together learners, academics, educators and industry professionals to consider key issues and implications for fostering creative entrepreneurship.
This free event will launch project findings from a multi-institution European teaching and learning project CreBiz that developed, tested and evaluated a university business study lab module for creative industries. The lab is organised by the CreBiz project team from the Bristol Business School at University of the West of England (one of participating institutions) with support from UWE's Digital Cultures Research Centre.
The day features three panel sessions -
Panel 1 takes a look at the current creative industries landscape, including mapping design and media activity in Bristol and Bath (Jon Dovey: Prof. of Screen Media and Andrew Spicer: Prof. of Cultural Production, UWE)
Panel 2 reflects on ways to develop the entrepreneurial capacity of arts and cultural professionals (Jo Lansdowne - Creative Programme Manager: Watershed, Alison Davis - Arts, Creative Industries and Education Partnerships Project Manager: UWE, Lhosa Daly - Deputy Director: Spike Island)
Panel 3 considers ways to address creative skills and talent development in alignment with enterprise initiatives (includes Dave Jarman - Teaching Fellow in Entrepreneurship: Bristol University, Tomas Rawlings - Auroch Digital/Bristol Games Hub), Nicky Williams - Creative, Digital & High Tech Sectors Skills Adviser: Creative Skills Hub (Business West), Vince Baidoo - Founder (Southblessed)
