Creative Portsmouth by Claire Sambrook
Exploring the creative elements of the city through its businesses, people, community and students.
A 96 page with images and interviews with over 80 local creatives. The aim of the book is to publicise the enormous amount of creative talent we have in the city and showcase a vast range of work from illustrations, design, photography, street art, painting, architecture and jewellery. It will also act as a catalyst to attract more creative companies to set-up their businesses in the city.

“I’m delighted that the University has been able to drive the development of the Creative Portsmouth book.  Portsmouth has a long tradition of creativity and the creative businesses and organisations featured in this book employ thousands of people across our city.  What really excites me is that these businesses have the potential to employ many more people and I hope that by showcasing their talents in this book they will be able to attract more customers. I’m delighted that the book will also be used to promote our city and to encourage creative businesses from outside the area to make Portsmouth their home.” Mark Baker, Head of Research & Knowledge Transfer, University of Portsmouth.

Currently in development – Creative Portsmouth products made and sold throughout the city and beyond. Working with local businesses and students. Further details will be announced shortly.

Creative Portsmouth supported by The University of Portsmouth, ilovedust and Portsmouth City Council.
