Bringing together the world’s leading creative people for a week of discussions, debates and live events, SohoCreate today (Thursday 19 February) announces a number of key events, featuring amongst others, film director Sir Alan Parker and cinematographer Michael Seresin, theatre directors David Lan and Rufus Norris, chefs Angela Hartnett and Thomasina Miers and singer-songwriter Tracey Thorn.
Taking place in a variety of different locations across Soho, including a purpose built festival pavilion in Soho Square, designed by architects Cousins & Cousins, SohoCreate will join creative people from across all genres of the arts - music, film, art, fashion, literature, food, architecture and gaming - to talk about what they do and why they do it.
With discussions and debates with the world’s leading creative minds, Open Houses in Soho’s award-winning creative companies, including Framestore and The Mill, and a whole programme dedicated to Young Creatives from ages 6+, SohoCreate explores the nature of creativity and the impact and importance of the creative process in the UK.
The festival was set up in 2014 by Tom Harvey, MBE with the sole purpose of championing creativity; creative people, the risks they take, the dreams they have and the journeys they embark on to pursue them. Having worked in the creative industries throughout his career, Tom wanted to celebrate the extraordinary creative output from Soho and share the wealth of knowledge it harbours. In fact, research suggests that the concentration, turnover and output of creative industry workers in the Soho Cluster makes it the most creative square mile in the world.
