The Creative Regions Summer School is an exciting week of intense learning for postgraduate students, practitioners and policy makers interested in engaging with the current debates and research surrounding the role of the creative economy in local and regional development.
The Creative Regions Summer School has developed from the collaboration between the School of Art at the University of Kent, the Centre for Urban and Regional Studies of the University of Birmingham and the Cardiff School of Management of the University of Wales Institute, Cardiff.
It addresses topical issues and uses case study materials that have emerged from the research activities that the three Universities have been carrying on in this field in the UK and internationally. The Creative Regions Summer School will rotate each summer between the cities of Canterbury, Cardiff and Birmingham.
In 2011, the summer school will be hosted by the School of Arts at the University of Kent in Canterbury on 3 to 8 July.
