Creative England is the first dedicated support agency for the creative industries in the English regions outside London. It is a private “not for profit” company, limited by guarantee, with the core purpose of supporting the sustainable growth of independent creative businesses, and the talent that feeds them, in every part of England outside London.
From 1 October 2011, Creative England will become the delegated body for the distribution of National Lottery funds from the BFI, previously held by the RSAs in the English regions outside of London.
This means that the following Lottery film funded activities will transfer to Creative England: Film Culture (including film heritage, film education and film exhibition), Talent Development and Location and Production Services.
Creative England will operate three hubs located in cities which form the strongest centres for the creative media industries in the Northern, Central and Southern regions: Manchester, Birmingham and Bristol.
See FAQ's for more information on Creative England. Creative England builds on the work of the Regional Screen Agencies (RSAs) outside of London that, for the past ten years, have assisted the development of the film, TV, interactive, games and digital media industries in the English regions.
Please visit the Creative England website to find out about their work and how it might affect you.
Each RSA outside of London is an independent company with its own set of plans for the future. For more information, please visit the relevant RSA’s website to find out more. The RSA websites are:
