Co-design event
During the second day, a workshop on creative enterpreneurship will be given. Here is what organizer Frances Brown says about the event:

The aim of the Creative Enterprise Co-Design event is to bring together the key stakeholders involved in delivering or using creative enterprise initiatives in UK Art and Design departments to initiate discussion and help to aid understanding of experiences from differing viewpoints. The first stage of the workshop will focus on sharing needs, challenges and opportunities in order to create an environment to develop empathetic and practical solutions in the latter part of the event. The event is being run as part of my PhD study and builds on prior primary research from UK universities in order to further investigate emergent themes and encourage conversation and communication in the sector.
