Invite to Creative Ramsgate Economic Report launch

Heritage Lab workshop

Heritage Lab CIC is hosting an event aimed at supporting the creative sector in Ramsgate and surrounding area.

Building on the recent research published in autumn 2019, the event will launch the Creative Ramsgate Economic Report and will hear from high profile experts who are supporting the continued development of Ramsgate as a creative hub.

Arts Council England has launched its much awaited new 10 year strategy this week and the event will be one of the first in the UK to give people a chance to hear this from the regional director.

There will also be an opportunity to hear about business support and advice and network with creative colleagues and those involved in developing the sector locally. More detail about Heritage Lab’s plans to turn the former Granville hotel into a new creative hub will also feature.

Confirmed speakers include:

Professor Mike Weed; Pro Vice Chancellor [research & enterprise] Canterbury Christ Church University

Hedley Swain; Area Director Arts Council England

Gavin Cleary; Chief Executive Locate in Kent

Emma Wilcox; Director Creative Estuary

Rob Kenyon; CEO & Founder Heritage Lab CIC

The event is on February 5 at the Oddfellow’s Hall in Ramsgate Hight Street from 6,45pm.

If you work in the creative industries locally or are interested in the development of the creative industries to support the regeneration of Ramsgate you can register via Eventbrite. It’s a free event, but ticket only at
