The Big Creative UK Summit: Best Bits

Back to top

As our annual festival has evolved over the past three years, growing from the virtual Creative Coalition Festival to The Big Creative UK Summit, so too have our recurring sessions that pop up in our programme year after year.

These flagship events reappear so we can revisit vital conversations and have the opportunity to reflect on circumstances in the fabric of the Creative Industries one year on; to understand the changes that have been made and identify the ones yet to come. 

The Big Creative UK Summit is bringing some of these sessions back for 2024, but where have the discussions taken us so far?


The best of Sky Arts Hour 

The leading broadcast channel for the arts, Sky Arts, has been a committed partner of The Big Creative UK Summit since its inception. Their Sky Arts Hour sessions provide the breathing space between more weighty debates, presenting creativity in its rawest forms, from visual art to dance performances. These intermissions have a reputation for bringing the most experimental and accessible content to our audiences – we can’t wait to show you what we have in store this time.
