Join us to celebrate the first year of the Creative Informatics programme and find out what our creative community have achieved so far!

Creative Informatics Innovation Showcase 2020

Celebrating innovation across the creative industries in Edinburgh and beyond.

Creative Informatics is an ambitious research and development programme that is supporting the creative industries to do inspiring things with data.

Over the last year, we have provided funding and development opportunities to a wide range of creative individuals and organisations in Edinburgh and South East Scotland, enabling them to explore how data can be used to develop ground-breaking new products, businesses and experiences.

Join us for the first CI Innovation Showcase to find out more about the creative projects we have supported to date, explore the impact our programme is having on Edinburgh/SE Scotland’s ecosystem, and celebrate the learning and successes of the Creative Informatics community.
