What is Creativity NI?

Creativity is the ability to generate new and novel ideas. It often involves connecting things not previously or sufficiently connected – such as knowledge, people and organisations from different backgrounds and disciplines. This can lead to innovation, which is the successful application of new ideas and approaches to complex economic and social challenges here and elsewhere.

Creativity NI aims to stimulate creative connections by showcasing the work of creative and innovative organisations across the north of Ireland. It particularly highlights the transformative power of the creative industries and cultural sectors. These areas are increasingly recognised across the world as drivers of wider business and social innovation. They can act as catalysts and enablers of a more collaborative region which embraces creativity and innovation at all levels of society.
