Strategic leadership in a creative economy

Creative Clusters is an independent policy conference in Glasgow (17-20 November 2008) that will examine the growth of the creative economy.

This seems like a timely event to bring together those working – not just within the creative industries – but also in initiatives to encourage creativity as a driver for businesses.

One such initiative in Birmingham is Creative Republic, who hosted a discussion on how Birmingham’s creative industries can have a role in the Big City Plan.

One of the themes at the Creative Clusters conference is strategic leadership in the creative economy, asking “in a sector built equally upon input from business, culture and technology, who provides policy leadership?”

This is an interesting issue that was mulled over at a Birmingham Bloggers meet, stimulated by a discussion on Created in Birmingham.

A wide-ranging event hosted in Scotland, with ‘outside’ input from international case studies, may help provide some inspiration and fresh thinking for those who are passionate about Birmingham’s future.
