Free Creativity Seminars - March 2019
In recent years the UK’s Creative Industries have consistently expanded faster than any other economic sector. Last year the sector grew 7.6% to contribute almost £92bn net to GDP, around 10 million pounds an hour. One in 11 jobs now depend on the Creative Industries, and these are among the least likely to be lost to automation.
