SUBMISSION DEADLINE EXTENDED – THURSDAY 4TH AUGUST, 12NOON
The creative and digital industries in the North East of England are a vast and varied network – one that has experienced a huge amount of change over recent years (and beyond!). The 2022 Creative Fuse North East Conference will be a space for the project, and the sector more widely, to reflect on all that we have done, experienced, researched and achieved over the last three years. More importantly, it will make room for us to ask ‘what’s next?’ and tackle some of the most pressing issues being faced for the future of the sector.
Combining creative practice and skills, technological and innovative advancements, social endeavours and enterprise, and business and entrepreneurial mindsets, the conference will be an opportunity to share ideas and research, provoke discussion, and lay foundations for our collective future. It is the fusion of these things, and many more besides, that is at the core of Creative Fuse North East.
We are in advanced discussions with a publisher about a Creative Industries books series on these conference themes, which we also see as potential journal special issues.
The Creative Fuse Conference is free to attend and will take place on:
- September 14th – Day 1 of Conference – Middlesbrough
- September 15th – Day 2 of Conference – Northumbria University, Newcastle
