Creative Futures Partnership

The Creative Futures Partnership (CFP) is a pioneering partnership between The Glasgow School of Art (the GSA) and Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE).

The partnership brings together GSA’s distinctive strengths in creativity and innovation with HIE’s economic and community development expertise. In particular, the CFP is committed to the long-term and sustainable development of a creative, entrepreneurial and internationally connected region.

Through vibrant research and teaching programmes, the partnership addresses complex issues facing the region, such as youth migration and innovating the use of digital technologies. Projects within the partnership link internationally with the GSA’s academic and business partners to develop the creative capabilities of students, enterprises, communities and government.

Together we are delivering transformational benefits for the Highlands and Islands of Scotland.

InDI’s projects under the CFP include Archipelago 136, Bag O’ Clews and the Design Network.
