The Creative Fuse Conference Returns!

28 June 2022

Our 2022 Creative Fuse Conference will take place over two days this September!


The conference will be an opportunity to listen to key note speakers, take part in workshops and explorative discussion, and enjoy performances and exhibitions.

As you would expect from Creative Fuse, we will explore the impact and role of creativity in the region, economy and society, and how we can be more sustainable in a changing world.

This will include creative places, levelling up, co-creation and collaboration, and how creativity can shape identity and innovation.

More information will be shared in the coming weeks, so please mark the dates in your diary and sign up to our e-newsletter to keep updated with all conference announcements!

“We are absolutely thrilled to have won the Vice-Chancellor and President Award at this year’s Engagement and Place Awards. We’re particularly honoured given the very high standard of entries this year that reflect a wide range of excellence and impact. The win, and the project’s success, is based on two things: firstly, we are very proud to collaborate and work together as five university partners to bring together our combined expertise to help a growing and hugely important regional sector; and secondly, we are privileged to work with a broad range of wonderful and passionate creative businesses and practitioners here in the North East, and to help creativity and creative-led innovation go further to make our region even more special and successful”.
