The Community Creative Tech Fund, In partnership with the Creative Communities Hub Project

The Community Creative Tech Fund is part of the Creative Informatics programme, which aims to bring the city’s world-class creative industries and tech sector together, utilising innovative data-driven technologies to develop ground-breaking new products, businesses and experiences.

Creative Informatics has been awarded additional funding by the Arts & Humanities Research Council (part of UK Research & Innovation) to support investment in capital projects (buildings and/or rent, facilities, equipment and maintenance, etc.) which support our legacy as a project and further the equality, diversity, and inclusion impact of creative data driven innovation in our region.

The Community Creative Tech Fund, in partnership with the Creative Community Hubs Project, is a fund for significant (£5k – £50k) capital investments in community based projects and organisations/groups that enable innovative creative activities, projects and entrepreneurship with data and data driven technologies. We have a total of £110k funding to allocate to these projects and hope to see proposals at a range of costs and ambitions, so that we can fund between 5 and 15 proposals. We will only be supporting proposals with a clear equality, diversity and inclusion impact, and particularly encourage and hope to see applications from communities and organisations that are under-represented and overlooked in the creative industries and/or in the technology and innovation space.
