A recent report (see http://creativeconomy.britishcouncil.org/Policy_Development/news/programme-refresh-americas/) from the The British Council’s Creative Economy newsletter is on the reshaping of its programme in the Americas, after delivering successful projects in the region for over a decade. Last month, a diverse steering group from the Americas and the UK met in Medellin – recently voted the world’s most innovative city – to discuss the future of the programme. David Codling, Regional Arts Advisor (Americas), reflects on a productive strategic meeting and looks ahead to a refreshed programme in the region.
Professor Andy Pratt was a member of the mission team, and is a member of the steering group of this important initiative. Another example of CMCI helping to shape the future of the creative and cultural industries across the world.
