Who is Behind Creative Front?

Lots of different creative business people from across Cambridgeshire contributed to the development Creative Front, but it has been led by a group of Founder Members made up of creative companies and organisations. The network is funded by VIVID (Value Increase by Visual Design), a cross-border network project supported by the European Interreg IV A Programme "2 Mers Seas Zeeën" and leading research institute Cultures of the Digital Economy (CoDE).

The network is driven by its 1000 members, the creative business community, but is supported by Anglia Ruskin University who house the activity and staff. Our Special Interest Groups represent specific sub-sectors and run a diverse range of networking events and activities which can be found under the Projects & Events section.
