Edinburgh College of Art Creative and GLAM Mixer evening

Time -
  • Are you a creative company, or in the GLAM sector, and innovating?
  • Do you need help with data, technology, or research edge expertise?
  • Can critical friends from academia help you see things from a new angle, solve problems and move forward?

Edinburgh College of Art invites you to a networking event on the 1st of March, 5-7PM, designed to bring together academics from throughout Edinburgh College of Art and selected external partners from a range of sectors, held at Inspace Gallery.

This is partly a chance to catch-up with partners we’ve worked with in the past but also to forge new connections with people who work in similar areas to explore opportunities to work together in the future, with 30 researchers from across ECA who are enthusiastic about making connections and impact with external partners.

The programme will be designed based on responses we get from invitees but, broadly speaking, there will be opportunities to present a problem, an idea, a call for collaboration in a short ‘pitch’ or to exhibit something, if desired. Both are optional, and there will be ample time for informal chats (with drink and nibbles!) Our researchers will be pitching their ideas and interests to you too.

Please e mail Claire at Claire.pembleton@ei.ed.ac.uk if you would like to attend by 5pm Friday 23 February.
