BLOG – Tales Of A Creative City

Last night we held our ‘Tales Of The Creative City’ event as part of Brighton Digital Festival. Our research team shared their thoughts and stories as well as the project’s early interpretations.


We had 4 presentations from members of our team:

Phil Jones, Managing Director, Wired Sussex

The Creative, Digital and IT Sector in Brighton: A few initial observations

Juan Mateos-Garcia, visiting Research Fellow, University of Brighton. Creative Industries Research Fellow, NESTA

Why here, Why Now? Factors of attraction, entrepreneurialism and growth in the Brighton CDIT cluster

Georgina Voss, Research Fellow, Faculty of Arts, University of Brighton

Two Degrees from a Robot Arm: Communities and Networks in the Brighton Fuse

Jonathan Sapsed, Principle Research Fellow, CENTRIM, University of Brighton

Business Models & Innovation

We’d like to thank our chair for the event, David Docherty – author of the original Fuse report and CEO of the Council for Industry and Higher Education – for his introduction to the event and for keeping things running on time so we had plenty of time for drinks and networking afterwards.

For those who were unable to attend the event, or those who would like to listen again, we will have an audio recording of the event online asap.

The event received fantastic feedback on twitter which you can see using the hashtag #BrightonFuse
