Creative Edinburgh LogoThe lovely folks over at Creative Edinburgh are putting on a really interesting day based around multi-platform content and collaborations on 21st March.

From their website: “The digital landscape is fast evolving, driven by the proliferation in devices & platforms through which content is created and shared. This is increasingly having greater influence on how creative businesses & practitioners operate.

The digital age casts its gimlet eye on all the creative industries – raw talent will shine through but new digital distribution networks, value chains and income streams are being conjured out of unexpected places. This conference will explore cross digital platforms as new drivers of creative business and the opportunities/ challenges that digital production and distribution have for creatives in Scotland.”

Tickets are available at : http://www.eventbrite.com/event/5429347324
