Working with the Partnership for Lebanon, we will be leading the 2nd in a series of workshops in early June to develop a vision and action plan for Lebanon to become a leading creative cluster for the Middle East.

After identifying a set of challenges for Lebanon to operate as a competitive and sustainable creative cluster in a previous workshop in February, this workshop will focus on the sector priorities, preferred actions and opportunities for the sector to take part in the ongoing cluster development programme bringing together key stakeholders from across the creative and cultural sector.

Tom Fleming invited as guest speaker at Creative Cities conference in Maribor, Slovenia

Tom Fleming will be a guest speaker at the 'Creative Cities' conference taking place in May in Maribor - European Capital of Culture 2012. The conference, part of the British Council's Creative Cities project, is set to take part during the 11th International festival of creative communication, Magdalena. During the festival, a debate will take place on how creative cities face the global crisis, the European Union's role and a look at best practice examples and steps for the future.

Throughout 2008-2011 the British Council is carrying out a regional project named 'Creative Cities' (in the Nordics, Baltics, Russia, Ukraine, Poland, Czech r., Slovakia, Hungary and Slovenia). The proposition is that a creative city is a better place in which to live, work and play. The aim of the project is to foster a greater understanding about the contribution creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship can have to make peoples' lives in cities better.
