Announcing the CREATe Festival 2016

By 24 January 2016No Comments

This is an old post. For the official CREATe Festival Website please go to

The ‘CREATe Festival 2016’ will take place in London on 24 June. This will be a showcase of the findings of CREATe’s research programme, and a vehicle to engage with a wider community – in the CREATe spirit! The Festival will play host to a multitude of public engagement events where delegates will be able to participate in behavioural experiments, a workshop on intellectual property and fashion, an exhibition on art forgery, the award of a hackathon prize, and the launch of CREATe’s very own tartan.

Festival Highlights

CREATe web resources will be demonstrated, such as the Voices project (capturing the views of creators),, the copyright evidence wiki and a database of litigation. Policy debates and expert panels will explore the future of the creative economy, the interface of digital innovation and legal regulation, and in particular the role of copyright law. Educational initiatives will include spot offers on the MSc@CREATe online executive Masters programme, as well as information on a range of courses offered from Consortium partners.


A bespoke CREATe Festival website will be launched soon. For a preliminary programme, please scroll through the section below.

Venue / Location

The venue for the Festival will be the RSA House for the whole of Friday 24 June while there will be activities in other parts of London on Thursday 23 June. CREATe Festival linked events are also being organized over a longer period in different parts of the UK.

Delegate Profile
