Business and Enterprise
The Faculty has a keen interest in supporting the creative industries and has established links with a number of agencies and practitioners in the region.
Lancaster Institute for the Contemporary Arts
The new Lancaster Institute for the Contemporary Arts, which houses the former department of Art, Music and Theatre Studies, is an important development in this respect, both developing existing relationships and fostering new ones. Live at LICA integrates the Nuffield Theatre, the Peter Scott Gallery and the Lancaster International Concert Series.
Cultural and Creative Industries Project
The North West Development Agency’s recent establishment of a sub-regional strategy for the Creative Industries has resulted in the Storey Institute becoming the focal point in North Lancashire for the delivery of that strategy. Lancaster University is a member of Lancashire’s Creative Industries Partnership and so the Faculty is ideally placed to make a significant contribution to this.
The Culture and Creative Industries Project, based in the University’s Tourism Centre and linked to the Faculty's Innovation and Enterprise Unit, has been set up to give some of the region’s blossoming small businesses tailor-made support.
The project will target businesses from potters and painters to growing media companies and stately homes to help them make the most of their products and services. Businesses will benefit from access to in-house expertise at the University ranging from marketing advice to assistance with accessing supply and delivery chains.
Funded by the Higher Education Investment Fund, the project aims to work in conjunction with existing business support services in the region and will also offer a series of other opportunities to the creative industry sector including networking events, targeted consultancies and travel bursaries.
The Faculty is currently developing a further bid to the European Regional Development Fund to extend this funding and to provide opportunities for relevant departments in the Faculty to contribute to these activities.
