Understanding the Landscape: Lessons from Glasgow


Unfortunately, this roundtable has been canceled as participants are currently dealing with the recent, tragic fire at the Glasgow School of Art.

The roundtable will present a summary of key relevant findings and emerging discussion points from Glasgow School of Art’s one-day conference “Creative Economy- Understanding the Landscape” (May 3rd 2018) looking at the Creative Economy landscape in the UK and its relation to HEI’s. There is growing recognition of the economic, social and cultural significance of a dynamic creative sector, but understanding the myriad of connections and initiatives between HEIs and this activity can be challenging. Having a clear oversight is important as this will allow the UK to develop the future strategies to support growth and development of a thriving creative economy.

The roundtable aims to share learning and intelligence from the Glasgow/Scotland event, broaden the debate and potentially uncover new synergies with audiences regarding the following themes:
UK support structures for HEI initiatives
Trajectories for creative talent from UK HEIs
The context of the ‘place’ agenda in Creative Economy debate

Participants include:
Ken Neil, Deputy Director, Glasgow School of Art;
Scott Parsons, Director of Strategy and Marketing, Glasgow School of Art;
Lynn-Sayers McHattie, Programme Director, Innovation School, Glasgow School of Art;

Helen Kendrick, Creative Economy Fellow, Glasgow School of Art
