A programme of exciting events has been announced to encourage creative enterprise among students. The events, which bring together the expertise of National Association of University and College Entrpreneurs (NACUE), London Metropolitan University's ACCELERATOR, The Cass and others include workshops, roadshows, talks and other activities.
Creative enterprise education has been proven as valuable for both employability and to provide the skills necessary to create a financially sustainable creative practice which is why we support the development of those improving research, teaching and support in the field, helping to build connections with industry and providing excellent opportunities to creative students and graduates hoping to enter the creative industries.
