Creative HE Brexit Manifesto Consultation Event: Creative HEIs in a Regional Context


Creative HE Brexit Manifesto

CHEAD and APDIG held an exclusive roundtable event in the House of Lords on Thursday 24th November 2016 to discuss how we can respond to the pressures and opportunities that Brexit presents to the art, design and creative media HE sector.

The success of this initial partnership has led to a more substantial collaboration between CHEAD and APDIG, with TCCE, to develop a Brexit Manifesto for the art, design and creative media higher education sector. An initial consultation workshop was held at CHEAD’s 2017 Conference in Edinburgh in March 2017 which will be followed by a regional programme of consultation events culminating in the Manifesto launch at the House of Lords on 11 September 2017.

Workshop 2: Creative HEIs in a Regional Context

Creative HE has been playing an increasingly central role in regional economies, regional creative sectors and clusters, as well as city centres and local culture. How do we model the future role of regional creative HEIs in a post-Brexit Industrial Strategy? This workshop will look at the role of creative HEIs in local economies as well as their role in future models and frameworks for a more balanced distribution of economic growth. How should the devolution agenda evolve post-Brexit?

Please Note: Places at the consultation events are extremely limited so invitations have been sent to the CHEAD member main contacts only. If you wish to attend any of the events above or nominate someone to attend on your behalf, please email Anna Maloney, Membership Manager:
