Final Speaker line up confirmed for creativeConf Cambridge 2015, a new event taking place at Anglia Ruskin University on 24th October

Speakers include a member of the Scottish Government, founders of STEAM Co., an organisation that runs art-meets-science events in UK schools and the Cambridge Science Centre

Software Acumen, organisers of hands-on technology events and CamCreatives, a centralised voice for creative people in Cambridge, confirmed today the final speaker line-up for creativeConf Cambridge 2015, a new practical event taking place at Anglia Ruskin University, East Road, Cambridge on the 24th October.

Speakers include Stephanie Taylor, social psychologist of the Open University, Nick Corston, founder of STEAM Co., an organisation that runs art-meets-science events in schools (and recently featured by the BBC), Lesley Thomson, a member of the Scottish Government, Lou Shackleton, co-founder of You Can Do Hub, Geatan Lee of the Cambridge Science Centre and Vaiva Kalnikaite of Dovetailed, a UX studio and innovation lab that has developed a 3D printer that can make edible fruit. A full speaker list and session details can be found on the creativeConf Cambridge 2015 website.

During the course of the day participants will hear from inspirational creative thinkers and take part in a variety of hands on and quirky workshops such as “The Robot of Mediocrity vs Danger Lou”,a superhero, created by Lou Shackleton. Participants will also be given a chance to build a machine which starts and ends with the pull of a string and an opportunity to design and print their own personalised cocktail using a 3D printer developed by Dovetailed.

A full conference programme is also available on the creativeConf Cambridge website.

“creativeConf Cambridge is shaping up to be a fun and inspiring day”, comment Steve O’Connor of CamCreatives. “We have a great line up of inspirational speakers and over the course of the day participants will learn how to apply creative principles to their own personal circumstances. I hope everyone will leave the event feeling motivated and apply what they learn to their everyday lives.”

creativeConf 2015 has been launched by Software Acumen and CamCreatives to promote the value of creativity in the workplace and at home. The event is not only for individuals who are actively involved in creativity on a daily basis, it is particularly intended for individuals who do not consider themselves to be naturally creative.

creativeConf Cambridge 2015 is being sponsored by 450 GSM, an online print service for the creative crowd, and Creative Front, an initiative led by Anglia Ruskin University to stimulate, incubate and grow further the creative industries in Cambridge and the surrounding area.
