It’s creative thinking time

Have your say

A body set up to promote and unite the Capital’s creative community was officially re-launched at an event in the city last night.

Creative Edinburgh has been revived as part of the council’s strategy to support creative industries.

More than 200 entrepreneurs, businesses and supporters gathered at the event at the Cube, in Leith Street.

Members represent the city’s diverse creative sector, from start-up enterprises to international companies, boasting architects, game designers, bloggers, performing artists, fashion designers and musicians.

The project is part-funded by Creative Scotland. It aims to support members through events and workshops, skill-sharing, mentoring and investment opportunities.
