Last month our regular Creative Circles event was visited by a delegation of diplomats interested in meeting and connecting with Edinburgh's creative industries businesses and professionals. It was a lively morning at CodeBase as we welcomed members old and new, and the visiting group spoke with members about their international ambitions, and connected with creative industries businesses from games to food, and digital design to film.
The group of Heads of Mission, UK Ambassadors about to be posted to embassies around the world, were hosted by Creative Edinburgh, as part of their preparation ahead of posting, going on to have a tour of CodeBase and then visit Skyscanner's office later that morning.
They have since been in touch to say how much they enjoyed their morning at Creative Circles and that they felt they had gained a real and useful insight into our world-class creative industries, as well as extending an invitation to our members to make use of international UK embassies around the world when they are travelling on business, to connect with creative and business communities locally.
Come along to August's Creative Circles tomorrow and connect with our creative community; further information available here. To see further photography by David N. Anderson have a look at our photo album here.
