Creative Network South represents organisations in the private, public and education sectors working together to support the development of the creative economy, improving employment, employability and entrepreneurship in the region.

CNS represents music, theatre, film, commercial design, architecture, crafts, art, radio all the industries that offer the opportunity to create something different and new.

Creative Industries form a significant part of the local economy and are a major contributor to employment and wealth creation in the region.

The South Hampshire Economic Strategy revealed that since 1997 creative employment doubled in the South Hampshire area - this growth rate exceeds the average across the greater south east.

The influence of creativity touches so many other industries, directly and indirectly and the partnership is keen to see this sphere of influence increase, supporting economic growth throughout the region by improving standards of employability as well as developing opportunities for employment and entrepreneurship.
