Get out of your studio and find your creative match – whether it’s another designer, curator, maker or manufacturer. In Part 1 in 2016 we partnered with the innovative design portfolio  Design-Nation and micro-manufacturing directory Just Got Made for an evening of collaborative opportunities, inspiration and speed-dating.

Industry Meets New Designers

The Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) accelerate innovation, solve problems and find markets for new ideas by encouraging better collaboration between science, creativity and business. Now, more than ever, cross-disciplinary thinking and ways of working are vitally important for the continuing success of the creative industries and UK economy.

As part of this year’s Thursday Late programme at Part 2, we joined forces with the KTN and its partners the Institute of Directors, IORMA and The Manufacturer to invite leading industrialists, entrepreneurs and investors – who usually work outside of the creative sector – along to see the show.
