Digital & Creative

Cornwall is the UK’s leading rural creative economy.
Its diverse heritage and culture fuel a vibrant creative sector that’s synonymous with the region. The sector is helping create an overarching narrative around Cornwall’s ambitions for the future, forging sector links and driving sustainability, inclusion, and diversity.

Cornwall’s creative businesses has national and international reach – the breadth of the sector and knowledge pool is vast, from fashion designers with shops in Japan, Canada and Paris, and filmmakers winning BAFTAs, to tech companies providing solutions for household names.

For businesses coming to Cornwall, the sector offers not only connections with new audiences but also a strong network of peer businesses.

A cluster of leading universities bolsters knowledge in the region and provides a rich talent pipeline direct to the industry.

The three main universities – University of Exeter, Falmouth University (one of the UK’s leading creative universities), and the University of Plymouth – have recently signed an MoU to harness the region’s academic and research expertise to improve people’s lives, empower communities and drive the economy. Plymouth Arts University also plays a key role in nurturing talent and connecting businesses with the sector.

Join a thriving digital and creative cluster with dedicated sector support from Screen Cornwall, Tech Cornwall, and Creative UK
