Creative Informatics Partnership Forum 2

Join us for the next Creative Informatics Partnership Forum, to share your feedback on the programme and hear about our future plans

Creative Informatics Partnership Forum

The Creative Informatics Partnership Forum is a chance for those involved in the creative industries in Edinburgh and South East Scotland to find out what we’ve been up to and what we have planned. More importantly it’s an opportunity for attendees to share their ideas and feedback on the programme in this friendly and informal online session.

If you haven’t engaged with the programme yet, come along to help Creative Informatics understand how they can support you, find out more about their future plans and hear about funding opportunities that could be of interest to you. If you have engaged with Creative Informatics, this is your opportunity to tell us what you have gained from the programme and what they could be doing better.

You can find the full agenda for the Partnership Forum below. Visit their website for a rundown of what we’ve been up to over the last few months!
