Mapping the Creative Coast

Map of the Central South Coast of England

Mapping the Creative Coast is a collaboration between the University of Southampton and University of Portsmouth, as part of the Coastal Creatives consortium of South-Central region universities. The research is gathering data and intelligence on the digital creative sector around Bournemouth, Southampton, Portsmouth, Winchester, Chichester and the Isle of Wight.

The project has two strands:

The production of an interactive map of businesses and practitioners in the region. This will give both a sense of the scale and diversity of the sector and vital data on individual companies for further research. The map can be accessed here:

A survey of the digital creative sector and industry bodies in the region, to assess the demand for industry-university collaborative research, development and educational needs and funding. This will feed into both knowledge exchange strategies and consortium research funding bids.

The survey will be open for submissions until the end of May 2021 and can be accessed here:
