The British Council’s Creative Economy programme forges connections between the growing creative and cultural industries in the UK and overseas.
We work with a network of pioneers on inspiring international collaborations in a rapidly changing world.
Using our unique global resources, we seek out those who are exploring the frontiers between culture, enterprise and technology. We connect them to experiences and opportunities in other places and across disciplines.
We believe that the pioneers we support have a vital role in making more open, optimistic and inclusive societies that contribute to our collective global future. We aim to tell their important story to institutions, policy-makers and investors so that they can better understand their value and how to work with them.
On this website you can find out more about the Creative Economy programme, network and opportunities to get involved.
