Cultural and Media Policy Studies News and Events

The Future of Creativity Symposium

The Centre for Cultural and Media Policy Studies invites you to an event, The Future of Creativity on Thursday 6th July in the Helen Martin Studio, Warwick Arts Centre.

Recent years have seen an explosion of scholarly interest in creativity as the creative industries have moved from the margins to the centre of economic life. Creativity, and creative thinking can, it seems, provide solutions to a wide range of the social, economic and political dilemmas that contemporary societies face.

The Centre for Cultural and Media Policy Studies at the University of Warwick has spent over twenty years engaged in debates about the status and meaning of creativity, reflecting on and researching its role in social and political life and preparing students for work in the arts, media and creative industries. In this one day symposium, we invite researchers, teachers and practitioners to help us in re-imagining creativity for the future.

The day will be organised around two themes - Creativity and Democracy and Creativity and Sustainability. It will feature contributions from Nick Wilson (King’s College London), Farzhana Khan (Shake!) Sholeh Johnson (Julie’s Bicycle),Kate Sayer (Warwick Arts Centre) and Chris Bilton, Nadine Holdsworth, Lee Martin and Pietari Kaapa (University of Warwick)

Lunch is provided. Please register your intention to attend
