Creative Fuse North East 2.0

Project: Research

Project Details


Creative Fuse North East 2.0 (CFNE 2.0) builds on the existing partnership between Newcastle University, Durham University, Northumbria University, University of Sunderland and Teesside University, supporting research-led growth in the Creative-Digital-IT (CDIT) industries of the North East England region.

CFNE 2.0 will support CDIT businesses and freelancers, cultural organisations and university researchers to produce innovation and idea development, but from a research viewpoint the project will build on the mapping and development work of the first phase to conduct new research seeking to understand the conditions for creativity and interdisciplinary fusion.

The project will go beyond research questions of whether creative fusion is occurring in the region or how much value is created, to understand why and how does it occur in certain projects and settings and why not in other cases. The research will support the creative sector in the NE during a period of significant economic and political change and uncertainty. CFNE 2.0 also aims to generate insights as to how meaningful and effective practice can be enacted in other peripheries with cases of success in spite of challenges.
