About CAKE and Creative Fuse

Creative Fuse North East is delivered by the five regional Universities and will help create new means by which to release unrealised potential within the Creative Economy and broader business communities. Creative Fuse North East will equip organisations with new creative confidence and capacity to develop innovation partnerships and ways of working, in order to respond to the challenges that matter to them. 

CAKE (collaboration and knowledge exchange) meetings will happen every second Thursday of each month, bringing together businesses, academics, freelancers, charities and public sector organisations to hear three short, stimulating presentations or provocations on a theme, followed by networking, and of course, cake. Creativity, digital and IT (CDIT) will be at the heart of our discussions, but CAKE will cover any and all topics, and show the multiple ways CDIT impacts upon all our work and lives. We’re keen to hear your ideas for themes and presentations for future CAKE events.
