The Creative UK Group has today announced the newly appointed members of its UK Council, following an open call for applications earlier in 2021. With members drawn from across each UK nation and region, as well as the full spectrum of creative sub-sectors, the UK Council plays a vital role in determining and shaping the Creative UK Group’s impact priorities, steering policy positions and sharing crucial insights from across industry and the UK.
Caroline Norbury MBE, CEO, Creative UK Group, said: “We are very excited to announce the newly appointed members of our UK Council, whose breadth of experience and expertise will be enormously valuable in driving our mission to ensure the best possible conditions for the growth and success of the creative industries. Representing freelancers, practitioners and businesses both big and small, they reflect the diversity and creativity that is central to what makes our sector thrive.”
UK Council members are appointed for a term of two years, convening three times a year to champion and share the priorities, concerns, opportunities and ideas of their creative communities.
It’s an illustrious list of members and Cockpit is proud to share that our CEO, Annie Warburton, has been appointed as part of this influential group.
From Annie: “The UK’s creative industries are fuelled by creative collaboration. Creative UK’s Council brings together leaders from the full spectrum of creative practices. I look forward to working with colleagues at Creative UK to grow a thriving creative sector open to talent from every background.”
Creative UK Group
Creative England and the Creative Industries Federation have come together to form the Creative UK Group. The two companies merged in 2020, making a greater difference together than would be possible alone. They work to connect, support, champion and invest in the UK’s world-leading Creative Industries.
