Upstream, West London and Creative Enterprise Zone West are excited to invite you to the LAUNCH of the Digital Creative Network West.
This new network aims to foster and strengthen relationships between large anchor organisations, startups and academia in West London. We want it to promote collaboration and accelerate innovation between the creative and technology sectors and support our digital creative ecosystem to better compete with emerging hubs.
Not only does West London have an incredible history of media and innovation, it also has a competitive advantage, with superior connectivity, major studios, international screen corporates, strong ecosystem and in-demand talent. Organic growth has seen the sector thrive but there is now a need for collaboration between industry, academia and government to address a number of shared priorities around talent, space, innovation and sustainability.
Who should come: All those who work in TV/Film, media and the digital creative space in West London (or close enough!) – regardless of size of organisation. If you love innovation, care about collaboration, want to solve common challenges and enjoy meeting like-minded creatives, this is the place for you.
More speakers to be announced.
16:00 – Short talks by TV/Film, media and the digital creative industry + Q&A
17:00 – Networking commences
17:30 – Event ends
The West London Boroughs (via West London Alliance), West London Business, Film London and London and Partners, are working together to promote the West London sub-region as the “Screen Capital”, a globally significant cluster recognised as a world-leader for talent, innovation and sustainability in the TV/Film industry.
West London and the surrounding environments have a competitive advantage with superior connectivity, major studios, international screen corporates, strong ecosystem and in-demand talent. While this cluster has grown organically over the years, there is now a need for collaboration amongst industry, academia and government to address the shared priorities of increasing the supply of skilled workers, increasing studio space, promoting networks, innovation and sustainability.
