Welcome to Queen Mary University of London’s Centre for the Creative and Cultural Economy

We operate as a support organisation for researchers, creative practitioners, entrepreneurs, private companies, cultural organisations and policymakers who recognise the importance of collaboration in this thriving sector. The centre has been built on QMUL’s existing creative economy networks established through Creativeworks London, through London Creative and Digital Fusion, and through research activities in its School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science, Centre for Commercial Law Studies, School of Geography, School of English and Drama, School of Business and Management, and People’s Palace Projects.

Partners from these established networks are participating in a range of NETWORK projects, workshops, and collaborations over the coming months.
