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 couldn’t help but having a sneaky look at the data we are collecting in the Brighton Firm Survey – here are some descriptives.

Clustering of businesses is often identified as important, both to the growth of regions and the businesses themselves. But are the dynamics of knowledge-based, creative business clusters a special case? And how do they and should they link with universities? We have examined the evidence and thinking on creative clusters and university links. We suggest that the picture is complex, somewhat biased with happy success stories, but there are experiences to learn from and principles to guide future interactions.
