A New Forum for Creative Futures
15-18 September 2016
Creative Matters: How creatives, institutions and businesses are collaborating to anticipate, shape and stimulate future economies.
A 4 day curated programme of Talks, Workshops, Master classes, Round table discussions, Installations, Exhibitions and Networking Events taking place in and around OXO Tower Wharf during the London Design Festival.
Creativity matters now more than ever, for the planet, for its peoples, for cities, for businesses and for the young. What was once seen as a ‘side-show’ is now recognised as essential.
But what does that really mean?
Working creatively is critical for everyone in an uncertain future where no one knows even what jobs we’ll all be doing, or how we will manage our resources, or even where or how we will be living.
Creative Matters is an investigation into this emerging Sector and an invitation to collaborate, network, research and create a dialogue. We hold out a hand to you to join us in this endevour, to bring your resources, your ideas, your teams and your talents to anticipate, shape and direct a possible future where creativity is the key driver. Creative Matters.
These days are an opportunity to present, exchange knowledge, experience, and of course to connect.
Join creative thinkers, practitioners, institutions and businesses to debate, forecast and shape the role of creativity in future economies.
