CREATIVE BRIGHTON - the creative industry leadership group for Brighton & Hove - aims to encourage a thriving creative industries sector in Brighton and Hove and beyond, ensuring that the city and the region creates the conditions in which companies of all sizes can achieve the level of commercial success and critical recognition they aspire to.
CREATIVE BRIGHTON is made up of a group of entrepreneurs in the creative industries and organisations that provide training and support for creative firms and individuals. The group meets quarterly and a draft constitution was drawn up in 2004. It is hoped that CREATIVE BRIGHTON will eventually become an elected group more formally representing the sector. The Chair of CREATIVE BRIGHTON is Phil Nelson, Director of First Column Management Ltd., which is a music management company based in Brighton.
