Conference details

The Creative Regions Summer School is an exciting week of intense learning for postgraduate students, practitioners and policy makers interested in engaging with the current debates and research surrounding the role of the creative economy in local and regional development.

The Creative Regions Summer School has developed from the collaboration between King’s College London, the Business School at the University of Birmingham and the Cardiff School of Management at Cardiff Metropolitan University. It addresses topical issues and uses case study materials that have emerged from the research activities that the three Universities have been carrying out in this field in the UK and internationally. The programme and activities have been designed to introduce postgraduate students, practitioners and policy makers to the current academic knowledge and research in the field of creativity and local and regional economic development. It includes a general introduction to the knowledge-base developed in this field, practical approaches to data analysis and interrogation as well as case studies of local, national and international relevance.

Whether you are working with creative industries policy strategies or you are in the process of undertaking further research in this field, the Creative Regions Summer School will provide a sound knowledge-base and will help to direct and support your
future learning.
