- Oxfordshire Creative Industries Showcase 2022
Following a three-year gap due to the pandemic, the Oxfordshire Creative Industries Showcase returned on 21 June 2022, bringing together our world-leading creative industries sector.
Jointly-led by OxLEP and Oxford Brookes University, the second creative industries showcase came back to the university’s Headington campus following our 2019 edition, bringing together innovators, local and national businesses, entrepreneurs, national sector bodies and representatives, industry leaders and influencers championing the creative industries in Oxfordshire at a local, national, and international level.
It did so around a theme of ‘Celebrating Oxfordshire’s role in the UK’s creative economy’.
As well as demonstrating the breadth of creativity and innovation that exists within the creative industries sector, plus the opportunities available to young ‘creatives’ in Oxfordshire, the celebration particularly focused on why effective and engaging storytelling is key as well as looking into Oxfordshire’s contribution to the post-pandemic regeneration of the UK’s creative sector.
It will also engaged teachers and school leaders to highlight the potential of future careers for Oxfordshire’s young people in the creative industries.
The day focused on a series of panel sessions curated by key partners in the event, Oxford Brookes University, University of Oxford TORCH, and OxLEP.

The Visitor Economy Renaissance Programme
The Visitor Economy Renaissance Programme is a new £1.64 million programme of activity, led by OxLEP to assist the recovery of Oxfordshire’s visitor economy.
This programme, which is being supported through funding secured by OxLEP via the government’s Contain Outbreak Management Fund, aims to back the sector’s ongoing re-emergence from Covid-19 through a variety of positive interventions allowing the strengthening of the sector post-pandemic, as well as maintaining and retaining consumer confidence for the industry.
