Creative Collective

What is Creative Collective?

It is our new programme that supports the creative economy with social impact in Mexico drawing from the experiences of the United Kingdom. It is a comprehensive programme focused on strengthening the capacities of different actors in the creative economy, divided into three main strands:

  • Young creators - through the Creative Enterprise Programme for young creative/social entrepreneurs.
  • Creative leaders - through the Creative Leadership Programme for cultural, creative and social leaders managing projects that challenge the limits of social/cultural/creative management.
  • Policy - through the Creative Policy Programme we work to strengthen public servants' capacities directly involved in managing social, creative and cultural projects in the public sphere.

Besides capacity building across these three strands, Creative Collective includes a number of other activities, including conferences, seminars and public forums, as well as new research on the creative economy through open publications.

Creative Collective is part of the British Council initiatives that focus on Cultural Policy Leadership programmes.
