Creativeworks London Festival 2016 – Proposals now open!

Creativeworks London, has funded almost 150 collaborative projects between researchers and cultural and creative businesses in the capital since Autumn 2012. An exciting research programme has also been delivered, contributing detailed knowledge on London’s creative economies. After four very stimulating and engaging years, Creativeworks London will be drawing to a close in May 2016.

This programme has produced a plethora of ground breaking research partnerships with very exciting outcomes for arts and humanities research and the creative, digital creative and cultural industries. Many recipients of the awards have experienced diverse and positive developments as a result of Creativeworks London and, as such, it is our intention to provide a platform to showcase this, through a festival event and final showcase, scheduled for Friday 29th April 2016. We would like to invite all of the projects (including both the academics and SMEs) we have supported to put in a proposal to be part of our end of project festival which will be held at King’s College London, Strand Campus.

The deadline for completed forms is Friday 8th January 2016, 5pm and should be returned to All queries in the first instance should be directed to
