Moving Image Group (MIG) is an affiliation of a number of the UK's most dynamic organisations working in the artists' moving image niche. Since being established in 1998, MIG has begun to establish its reputation for creating a responsive, informed and accessible network and forum for growing, discussing and sharing debates around policy issues and challenges connected to developing the contribution artists and moving image make to the UK's creative industries.

The Moving Image Group's primary assets are the organisations that it is comprised of and the individual talent working within those organisations.

Tom Fleming Creative Consultancy - A Creative Cluster Programme for Lebanon

At Tom Fleming Creative Consultancy we are excited to be working in partnership with Cisco to develop a Creative Cluster Programme for Lebanon. The 2009 programme will aim to maximise the potential transformative role provided by proposed new broadband infrastructure. We will be leading a research and consultation process to generate partnership and debate through a series of consultation events leading to a Creative Strategy Action Plan.

With a rich history of creative expression, and a diaspora of leading creative companies, the opportunity exists for Lebanon to flourish as a creative hub for the Middle East and wider region.
