THE PROJECT

With a strong track record of harnessing creative talent, entrepreneurship, future-thinking knowledge transfer and connections between industry and academia, Anglia Ruskin will promote and profile the diverse range of creativity within the visual design sector in our region. Focusing on 3 key areas, we will;
  • Build dynamic and sustainable relationships with local schools and education providers, in order to stimulate and encourage the understanding of study and work in the Visual Design sector.
  • Our creative industries network, Creative Front, will provide sector-specific advice and establish a virtual 'creative incubator'.
  • Provide unique showcasing and networking opportunities though a range of regular festivals and events for specific Visual Design sectors.
