British Council Developing Inclusive and Creative Economies (DICE) programme
29 June 2019 - Kamran Rashid

In June 2019, we partnered with Impact Hub Kings Cross as part of the British Council’s Developing Inclusive and Creative Economies (DICE) programme. Our team hosted a delegation from Pakistan, building links between the city’s Pakistani diaspora, its wider economy and Pakistan’s creative industries.

The delegation included representatives from Invest2Innovate, Pakistan Poverty Alleviation Fund and The Nest i/o.

Our team developed a detailed programme for the delegation, ranging from roundtables, events and workshops…

  • An overview of the local social enterprise and creative ecosystems.
  • A civic reception at City Hall, with local and civic leaders.
  • A reception at the local Pakistani Consulate.
  • Visits to Duke Studios, University of Bradford, Bradford Literature Festival and Yorkshire Adabee Forum.
  • A workshop to allow delegates to co-design future collaborations together.

The visit was followed by a reciprocal delegation to Pakistan in September 2019, to further cement collaborations between our communities.
