What is it?

Brighton Fuse starts with the belief that by connecting the arts, humanities and design with digital and ICT, then creativity and innovation can be enhanced.

An initial 2-year research and development project which mapped, measured and assisted Brighton’s creative, digital and IT (CDIT) cluster was carried out in 2013. The project supported mutually beneficial connections between higher education, those engaged in the creation of arts and culture and Brighton’s digital technology sector. The results of the survey can be found here.

A further study was carried out, this time focusing on freelancers in the sector. The full report of research findings can be found here.

Results from our follow-up research will be released in November 2015. For information about our research event click here.
