AHRC Creative Industries Clusters Programme Consultation NI

Date Posted: October 31, 2017

Queen’s University and Ulster University are collaborating on an exciting new funding opportunity which could lead to the setting up of a Research and Development Partnership for the Creative Industries in Northern Ireland.

Funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council’s Creative Industries Clusters Programme, the Programme is part of the Government’s Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund and aims to drive economic growth in the Creative Industries through the development of exciting new products, services and experiences.

The Creative Industries in Northern Ireland will be at the heart of the proposal and as such a consultation will take place on Friday 10 November at 9.45am in the Great Hall, Queen’s University. Attendees will have the opportunity to relay what they feel are the key challenges to growth for the creative industries in Northern Ireland and what the sector needs in terms of long-term support.

Contribution on the day has the potential to help shape the bid and the proposed work plan.
