The British Council’s Creative Economy programme forges connections between the growing creative industries in the UK and overseas.
Using our on-the-ground resources in over one hundred nations, and a global network defined by direct access to policymakers and collaborative dialogue, we co-create programmes to develop cultural enterprise, leadership, skills and infrastructure in partnership with a range of UK and international organisations and individuals.
We are particularly keen to promote collaboration between people working in culture, enterprise and digital technology, accelerating growth in R&D and new business models.
The UK has much to share from its considerable experience of developing the Creative Economy and the British Council is committed to supporting the international exchange of ideas and collaboration.
On this website, you can find out more about the British Council’s programmes, networks and opportunities to get involved.
