Fiona Whitehurst

Fiona was involved in the mapping exercise that led to the Creative Fuse Initial Report and is now running the Creative Connections business development strand with Paul Richter, Mo O’Toole and Anna-Maria Steel.

She has been involved in the project since it was first proposed that the five North East Universities draw on the findings and approaches of Brighton Fuse, Fusebox 24 and London Fusion to look at the Creative, Digital and IT sector in this region.

Fiona is passionate about exploring with practitioners the very different creative and commercial landscape of the North East and the ways we can collectively ensure the sector gets both the national and international recognition it deserves and the support it needs to thrive and flourish.
