There are increasing opportunities for artists, designers and other creative entrepreneurs to use their skills to address social issues. From innovating services for public benefit to setting up pioneering initiatives and businesses that drive change, creative thinking and processes have a good place in making a difference. Forward-thinking creative graduates and businesses are turning their attention to areas such as homelessness, health care, unemployment, climate change and sustainability to make an impact. This inspiring event will showcase some examples, look at the definition of social innovation, common ways of working and support networks for those interested in setting up in the field. Speakers include:

Chair: Nick Jankel-Elliott - Director of We-create (a collaborative platform for social innovation), Co-Founder of Disruptive Social Innovators (a network of 1500+ ethical innovators) and an entrepreneur, writer and broadcaster on creativity, collaboration and leadership. www.nickjankel-elliott.com
