The success of the UK creative economy is based on its ability to combine local talents within a national creative class delivering global impact. The 2015 ukadia conference will have as its theme the local-national-global dimensions of creative education, the particular role of specialist institutions delivering arts education face in maintaining currency and relevance in the creative curriculum.
The changes taking place throughout the UK education system alongside the political uncertainties in this election year provoke debate over the ways that we continue to nurture talents, enhance participation and to think about new futures. The conference will bring to the platform a range of speakers engaged in the creative economy, arts education and politics.
