Creativity is thinking up new things. Innovation is doing new things. - Theodore Levitt

London Innovation Ecosystem

Multidisciplinary collaboration between creative and tech is ever more important in fostering innovative thinking and doing.
For those similarly interested in synergies, I share my ongoing project mapping London's innovation ecosystem, engaging in communities across Creative + Design, Fashion Tech + Retail Tech, Makerspaces, and VR + AR to gain insight and inspiration from thought leaders, early adopters, design thinkers, disruptors, and futurists.  How do interconnected themes translate into ideas, action, products, and experiences across this landscape?  How do we engage to increase opportunities for collaboration and boost the power of community?  Looking forward to connect and share ideas.

Communities + Synergies

If you're curious about the latest happenings across the creative and tech spectrum, London readily provides opportunities to seek and connect with communities innovating at the forefront.  Excitingly, platforms such as WEAR Sustain specifically aim to bring together creatives and technologists in cross-disciplinary collaboration to design and develop wearable technologies and smart textiles towards more sustainable approach.  Various VR/ AR organisations enable enthusiasts to learn alongside the knowledgeable and taste what's in our future beyond the smartphone.  While empowering tech circles champion women and diversity.    
I invite you to explore the links below to the myriad of groups, events, and annual exhibitions forming the framework which inspires me to further connect the dots between creative and tech, design and science, human and machine in our increasingly interconnected world.
