Creative and Digital Innovation Cluster Croydon Event

15:30 – 19:00 | 25th January 2024 | The Creative Digital Lab

This event in Croydon is a unique partnering event with the Croydon Creative Network and the BIG Creative and Digital Innovation Cluster.

Established in 2017, the Croydon Culture Network brings together over 600 people from the creative and cultural industries to discuss how to make improvements across the borough, to increase the size and health of our creative industries, and to provide opportunities for more collaboration. The network usually meets a few times a year and is a great opportunity to network. Membership is free. To sign up for updates, please visit:  Culture network newsletter | Croydon Council

The BIG Creative & Digital Innovation Cluster is a dynamic network of South London-based creative and digital businesses – connected by location and a drive to create a supportive business community. Businesses can join the BIG Creative & Digital Innovation Cluster if they are in one of these South London Boroughs: Croydon, Kingston Upon Thames, Merton, Richmond Upon Thames and Sutton.
