Join us for the Creative Portsmouth Collaborative Event 2019, an interactive and informal morning, to celebrate the success of the creative industries in the city.

Listen to Cllr Pitt, the Deputy leader of Portsmouth City Council, as he discusses the energy of the creative industries in Portsmouth and their importance to the region’s economic growth. The Dean of the Faculty of Culture and Creative Industries at Portsmouth University will explain the positive impact of the numbers of students who are remaining in the city that are inspired to start their own creative businesses.

Hear from key note speakers from successful international creative businesses in film, design and music, who will be discussing their experiences. Learn about their success stories, gain practical advice, and be part of the discussions on how we can overcome the future challenges of the sector to continue its success and growth in the city.

The event will be an opportunity to make new connections to further boost creativity and support growth and funding opportunities.

An artist will be on hand to visually capture the discussions of the day as well as through the medium of film.

Registration is from 8.30am. Light breakfast will be available. Current speakers include:

  • Cllr Steve Pitt, Cabinet Member for Culture Leisure and Sport
  • Trevor Keeble, Dean of Creative and Cultural Industries at Portsmouth University
  • James Sharp, Director/ Film Maker at Sharp Film

More speakers to be revealed and stay tuned for further announcements.
