Create Britain is a national initiative, spearheaded by Creativepool, to celebrate and champion the creative industries and the £100 billion+ value they help to generate for the UK economy each year.
Create Britain has already received significant backing from a number of key industry players including Ogilvy Mather and Ogilvy Labs, School of Communication Arts, Talenthouse, Shaun Clarkson of Channel 4’s ‘Four Rooms’ and Shaun Clarkson ID, Inspiring Interns, The Marketing Store, and Clerkenwell Design Week amongst others.
Nicole Yershon, Director of Innovative Solutions at Ogilvy & Mather comments: "It has never been more important for partnerships and collaborations - it is impossible to know everything and everyone in this ever changing, exciting landscape - where the convergence of creativity spans across all platforms and disciplines - Ogilvy Labs working with Creativepool will keep up to speed with this diverse creative talent."
Marc Lewis, Dean at the School of Communication Arts, who will be speaking at the BAFTA launch event said: “As someone who cares deeply about helping young adults to reach their creative potential, I’m thrilled to lend my support to the Create Britain campaign. Our school is a platform for generations to share ideas and knowledge and Create Britain shares the same passion and vision. It’s fantastic to see an initiative that will take this sentiment nationwide, reaching out to communities and creative industries across the country. This is just the start of the journey but Create Britain has a very bright future.”
Maya Bogle, Co-Founder of Talenthouse commented: "If we don't want to live in a grey World then we have to nurture, recognise and support creative talent. It's increasingly difficult with the free distribution of content and the competition to break into the creative industries for artists to derive an income from their talent. Talenthouse is committed to creating opportunities for creatives to work with famous artists, brands and each other as well as creating a new source of income for artists through brand sponsorship. We're thrilled to be supporting "Create Britain".
