The Creative Industries Festival 2021: What is a creative and diverse county?
Monday, 17 May 2021, 12:00 to 13:00
Who this event is for
Traditionally, Oxford and Oxfordshire’s creative industries are hidden from many of our hardest to reach communities – ironically, these are often the communities with the talent, entrepreneurship and most creative minds to be successful.
In many instances, many of these communities perhaps don’t know how to connect with the Oxfordshire business landscape to progress their creativity to the next level, or even commercialise their ideas.
The Oxfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership (OxLEP) will convene a panel discussion on how we can strengthen and ensure a diverse and economically-stable creative industries sector in the county, recognising what is needed to support current and future aspirations of working within the creative economy and supporting those with the best ideas to realise their potential.
OxLEP's role is to champion Oxfordshire’s economic potential, acting as a catalyst and convener to drive a dynamic, sustainable and growing economy.
