The Creative Fuse Conference features an exciting line-up of presentations, panel discussions, workshops and performances from creative practitioners, businesses and academic contributors.

The Conference aims to explore the value of Creative/Digital Fusion and share knowledge gained throughout the Creative Fuse North East project.

We’d like to invite you to join us to discuss ways in which you combine art and design skills with technology expertise in your business, your research into cross-sector collaborations, or your experiences of combining academic, creative practise and business expertise. Come and join the conversation and add your voice to this exploration of the future for the North East’s creative, digital and IT sectors.

The conference is open to anyone who identifies as being connected to the Creative, Cultural, Digital or IT sectors, including SMEs (Small to Medium Size Enterprises), larger organisations, freelancers, sole traders, artists and creative practitioners, academics and students (undergraduate and postgraduate).

The Creative Fuse Conference is being held on Tuesday 10th and Wednesday 11th July 2018 at the Discovery Museum, Newcastle Upon Tyne.
