Event Details

Creative Coffee Leicester at LCB Depot
Wednesday 24th April 
from 10-12 noon

After last month's great Creative Coffee, we're preparing for an equally exciting one this month too! We've got the usual blend of coffee, creativity and chat so come along and speak to like-minded creatives about what you're working on, what's inspiring you or what you need help with. 


Guest Speaker – Dr Rachel Granger, 
Reader in Creative Industries, Leicester Castle Business School, Director of the Creative and Cultural Industries Research Group at De Montfort University

Disruption, Innovation, and the Creative City: the role of creative workers
Rachel is Director of the Creative and Cultural Industries Research Group at De Montfort University, and researches on creativity and innovation in cities. In this talk, Rachel will talk about the central role of creative workers in transforming cities, and the types of creative-led disruptions taking place in innovative cities. Rachel will focus on the role of creative networks n driving advancements in the city, and the alternative spaces that cities need to develop to ensure continued development. This is an update to her very popular 2017 session in which was run during one of our events. 

 

PLEASE NOTE THE TALK WITH DR RACHEL GRANGER WILL BEGIN AT APPROXIMATELY 11:30AM IN LIGHTBOX

 

Having researched the performance of creative industries in several urban economies since the turn of the Millennium, Rachel’s recent work has begin to focus in on Leicester's credentials as a Creative City, and the role of universities in the creative economy. Rachel is especially interested in how creative cities anchor economic growth from creative industries whilst key partners withstand the forces of Brexit and undergo transformation more generally. Rachel argues that the key role for creative cities over the next 2 years will be how to stimulate disruption rather than to avoid it.
