Some of the UK’s most creative minds will join together for a unique collaborative conference in Bristol later this year. Now in its third year, Vision will focus on the power of creative collaboration and provide the opportunity to attend dozens of talks, seminars and workshops.
Taking place at the Paintworks and produced by Bristol Media with funding from the Creative Industries iNet managed by Creative England, Vision’s organisers promise “an opportunity to share insights and experiences, and collaborate with likeminded people and businesses”.
Between November 14 and 15, there will be 14 different sessions a day “designed to inspire, provoke and stimulate creativity with plenty of opportunity for attendees to build a programme that will benefit their own businesses”.
Speakers already confirmed include Dan Germain, head of creative at Innocent Drinks; Rita Clifton talking about Pro Logo; and Andrew Cracknell, ad man and author of the Real Mad Men.
Vision is also due to attract more than 200 of the UK’s top digital, design, marketing, advertising, publishing, PR and television professionals including agency owners, MDs, creative directors, senior managers and freelancers.
Caroline Marshall from Bristol Media said: “The UK has seen a surge in activity and investment in the creative industries over the past decade or so, and we believe that creative collaboration will be a key aspect of developing our thriving business and cultural communities.
“Bristol’s growing reputation as a creative hub is, in part due to the nature of that workforce. We are a close network where people from different organisations often get together and aren’t afraid to collaborate, whether that be on projects or just sharing opinions. We feel this is a unique trait and has inspired this year’s Vision.”
