Event description

Description

London’s creative economy is a global success. Yet, with soaring housing prices and a squeeze on studio space, is it still realistic to run a craft business in the capital? Join Cockpit CEO Annie Warburton, ceramic artist David Marques, textile designer Majeda Clarke, and Ed Bayes, Culture at Risk Officer at the Mayor of London’s Office, for a debate chaired by Katie Treggiden on how we keep creativity thriving at the heart of the city.

For Mayor Sadiq Khan, creative enterprise is a priority: ‘London is a leading creative capital city, which attracts talent and enterprise from all over the world. The creative economy is estimated to provide one in six jobs in London and the creative industries generate around £42 billion for the London economy. It is also one of London’s fastest growing sectors.’

As London’s leading craft studios Cockpit Arts is pivotal in enabling makers to prosper in the city’s creative economy. Join us for a lively discussion on the ingredients behind the success of our 170 professional makers and hear how we plan to build for the future.
