Description

The Council for Higher Education in Art and Design (CHEAD), the All Party Design and Innovation Group APDIG), and The Culture Capital Exchange (TCCE) warmly invite you the launch of a manifesto setting out policy recommendations to give art, design and creative education the capacity to continue to contribute to the wider economy.

We are delighted to announce that the manifesto will be launched with a keynote speech by the Rt Hon Matt Hancock MP, Minister of State for Culture and Digital.


Design alone contributes over £72 billion to British economy ever year, with the creative industries playing a key role in making the country the most desirable place to study in Europe.

This manifesto, funded by CHEAD and over eighty of the UK's leading institutions for creative education, sets out priorities for central government, universities and the private sector that ensures that the creative industries can continue to draw upon the best education and training available to ensure that Britain remains a world leader for art and design.

This cross-party and cross-sector report has been written following a range of roundtables held across the country. It argues for policies that:

  • Ensure that academic research partnerships and collaboration continue on a pan-European basis

  • Put universities at the heart of regional economies and contributing to nationwide growth

  • Equip graduates with the skills employers and businesses require to face the challenges and opportunities of the future

The event will taken place in Portcullis House, part of the Parliamentary Estate.
