The UK’s first ever Creative Week is finally here! The event, which is a celebration of the creativity in the UK, kicked off on Monday with an overview of the creative industries – and what an overview it was!

And if you missed the live show, don’t worry because the sessions are all available on-demand here at the end of each day. That’s also where you can stay tuned for all the action during the rest of the week. Whether you’re a design nut, film buff, mobile fiend or photography pro, there’s something for everyone, so stay tuned!

 

We kicked off the creative industry overview with a lively panel discussion between Brendan Dawes, Joel Gethin Lewis and Dr Chris Gerry who gathered in the studio with presenter David McClelland to discuss if creativity can help drive the UK out of recession. With the magnificent setting of Tower Bridge behind them, the debate flowed for almost an hour, and those watching online had their say too with a whopping 88% of people that took part in our daily poll agreeing that creativity is a huge factor in stimulating economic growth and solving problems.

The evangelist demos and show-and-tell sessions that followed included jaw-dropping tips and tricks for Illustrator CS6 and Photoshop CS6, which were all received with relish and resulted in our #CreativeWeekUK Twitter followers going crazy about the black magic and special sauce Adobe uses in its products! Go to our on-demand hub if you missed it and want to see for yourself what was so special.

And that was just the first day! Carry on following all the action on Twitter using #CreativeWeekUK. And don’t just stay behind your screen, get involved through our competitions and audience challenges.
