Creative Metropoles – Tues 20th July 11am-1pm

June 22, 2010

Birmingham City University and Lighthouse Media have recently completed a pan-European project called Creative Metropoles which looked at 10 cities and their policies to the Creative Industries. Jez Collins and Paul Long of Birmingham City University will present the findings of the study at July’s Black Country Social Media Cafe:

Tuesday 20th July, 11am-1pm
Seminar Room, Light House Media Centre
Chubb Building, Wolverhampton
[On Google Maps]

[Please note the slightly earlier time this month]

The study included focus groups and discussions in both Birmingham and Wolverhampton (as a post-industrial town that sits near another major conurbations) and looks at their approach to Creative Industries. As the study recognises, social media has an important role in an area’s creavity:

“The lively social media scene thrives creativity bottom-up and makes Birmingham a vibrant place for social media innovations.”

Thanks to Light House who are providing the venue for the July social media cafe:

This is a free event, and no tickets are required. Whilst we expect there to be plenty of room, if you are travelling from further afield and want to be guaranteed a seat you can always email and let us know you are coming.
