First series of Articles written by Create Hub’s Industry Experts


At the beginning of the year, we announced that 12 Industry Experts would be sharing their insights into how technology is shaping the future of the arts, cultural and creative industries. A few months on and we share some of the wonderful articles written so far.

In January we announced Create Hub’s Industry Experts, a group of experts from the arts, creative and cultural industries that have come together to share their experiences of using digital technologies.

The contributors include writers from: Royal Shakespeare Company, Natural History Museum, Blippar, Bath Spa University, The Place, Cockpit Arts, Bemoir, Write Track, The Common People and Ammba.

We have begun publishing a series of their articles written about the opportunities, challenges and trends that creative organisations are facing in their line of work. Now that we are a few months in, we thought that we would share some of the articles so far.
