June sees London Metropolitan University’s first Creative Enterprise Month which includes a series of training, sharing and celebratory events for staff, students, graduates and industry focusing on creative business development and education.
Championing Creative Business through Education
Creative enterprise education has been proven as valuable for both employability and to provide the skills necessary to create a financially sustainable creative practice which is why we support the development of those improving research, teaching and support in the field, helping to build connections with industry and providing excellent opportunities to creative students and graduates hoping to enter the creative industries.
We have created a program of events to teach, inspire and share creative enterprise knowledge. All free to attend for London Met Staff, Graduates and Students.

NACUE Create, Enterprise Educators UK, Accelerator and Frances Brown (London Metropolitan University) are delighted to present the launch event of the Insight & Inspiration Roadshow, hosted at the Accelerator Business Incubator in London.
This event follows on from the success of Insight & Inspiration; an introduction to enterprise education for creative subject students, authored by Frances Brown and will be a forum to share best practice in creative enterprise education practice and research, bringing together educators from across universities, colleges, think-tanks, NGO’s and leading independent entrepreneurs and creative students. Our goal is to share the outstanding work being pioneered in creative enterprise education, inform the next edition of the guide and its supporting online resource and to create networks of like-minded people.
