We are delighted to announce Creativeworks London have awarded the fifth round of our Creative Voucher Scheme.

This is the biggest of Creativeworks London three initiatives with £1 million pounds worth of vouchers to be given out to support creative and cultural companies to develop collaborative research projects with an academic partner around one of Creativeworks London’s research themes.

The theme for the fifth round of vouchers was Archives. Topics for consideration included:

– The increasing digitising of cultural assets to create archives
– The potential to link archives to consumers and other interested          parties
– Digital curation in its widest sense
– Archives preservation
– Informal or hidden/unrecognised archives
– Archives as assets

The awards have gone to eight, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), and will support London’s businesses and academics in developing projects to ultimately have a positive effect on London’s Creative Economy.

We would like to congratulate:
