CREATe Symposium

CREATe, the UK Copyright and Creative Economy Centre based at the University of Glasgow, recently started work on a number of ambitious projects for the next five years. These are funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (as part of the Creative Industries Policy and Evidence Centre), the Leverhulme Trust, and the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. While we have conceived this 2019 Symposium as work-in-progress, we are committed to an interdisciplinary and long-term perspective. In these uncertain times, we need to look both backward (where do we come from?) and forward (where might we go?).

They include a BLACA lecture by CREATe’s Elena Cooper on Portrait of Lady Eden by Whistler (subject of a famous Paris court case in 1897, and held in the University of Glasgow’s Hunterian collection); and a policy keynote by Catherine Stihler, CEO of the Open Knowledge Foundation (and until 2019 a Member of the European Parliament for 20 years). Come and join us in shaping the next phase of CREATe’s research programme!
