Creative industries research and innovation


About us

The Creative Industries, the UK's fastest growing economic sector ( includes areas as diverse as advertising, architecture, arts, design, fashion, film, music, performing arts, publishing, R&D, software, toys and games, TV and radio, digital media and video games.

Our Network at Oxford Brookes brings together researchers, professionals, and local communities to share their expertise on this diverse sector. The network builds on the well established research history in various aspects of the Creative Industries, especially through the intersections of different disciplinary perspectives, including subjects such as psychology, built environment, geography, and business.

As a cross-disciplinary and collaborative Network, we explore critical issues and key themes around both local and global dimensions of the Creative Industries.
