THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This timely seminar will discuss next steps for growing Scotland’s creative economy - and will bring out priorities being discussed in the Scottish Government’s Creative Industries Advisory Group meeting in September.
Delegates will discuss key issues relating to skills and the creative workforce in the context of the UK’s impending exit from the European Union and priorities for developing effective partnership working - between educational institutions and the creative industries, and internationally - in furnishing the skilled workforce needed to underpin the sector.
They will also consider the way forward for policy, and the industry itself, to enable Scotland’s creative economy to seize opportunities in new markets and support the growth of creative hubs throughout Scotland - including the role of local authorities in the context of the range of City Deals being developed in Scotland.
Further sessions assess what more needs to be done by relevant sector agencies such as Creative Scotland and Scottish Enterprise to provide targeted support - including for SMEs who comprise much of the sector - customised for the needs of individual businesses.
