Creative Fuse Conference: Call For Papers and Proposals

Creative Fuse are looking for proposals for presentations, papers, workshops and performances for the Creative Fuse Conference on 14th & 15th September 2022.

They are in advanced discussions with a publisher about a Creative Industries books series on these conference themes, which they also see as potential journal special issues.

The Creative Fuse Conference is free to attend and will take place on:

14th September – Day 1 of Conference – Middlesbrough

15th September – Day 2 of Conference – Northumbria University, Newcastle

The 2022 Creative Fuse Conference will be a space for the project, and the sector more widely, to reflect on all that we have done, experienced, researched and achieved over the last three years. More importantly, it will make room for them to ask ‘what’s next?’ and tackle some of the most pressing issues being faced for the future of the sector.

Combining creative practice and skills, technological and innovative advancements, social endeavours and enterprise, and business and entrepreneurial mindsets, the conference will be an opportunity to share ideas and research, provoke discussion, and lay foundations for our collective future. It is the fusion of these things, and many more besides, that is at the core of Creative Fuse North East and Creative Fuse Tees Valley.
