Creative Voucher Round One Awards: Mobility and Mobile Culture

We are delighted to announce Creativeworks London have awarded the first 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 Londons research themes.

The first Voucher awards are on the theme of Mobility and Mobile Culture. The Creative Industries are highly mobile and rely on mobility of people, projects, ideas and products. They also increasingly utilise mobile technologies and apps as part of core business so much so that it is becoming the new norm. With this comes fresh opportunities, challenges, needs and responsibilities.

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

We would like to congratulate:
