The Nerve Centre, in partnership with Culture NI and Culture Company, played a lead role in Creativity Month, a celebration of creativity and the creative industries across the north of Ireland. An exciting programme of events and workshops took place throughout March on the theme of ‘Creative Connections', aimed at stimulating new thinking and collaborations to help creative people, creative ideas and creative businesses to emerge and flourish. The impact of the creative industries can be seen across a wide range of sectors from tourism to manufacturing.
There are examples all around us in advertising, architecture, art, crafts, design, film, music and digital technologies. Creativity Month also showcased how our creative and cultural infrastructure and programmes are providing new ideas to tackle challenges in the economy, health, social inclusion and the environment.
