The 2022 Creative Informatics Innovation Showcase will explore and celebrate a host of inspiring data-driven projects taking place across the creative industries in Edinburgh and South East Scotland.
Come along to this FREE all-day event to find out more about some of the innovative products, services and experiences that have been developed by creative individuals and organisations with funding and support from Creative Informatics.
