The Brighton Fuse starts with the belief that by connecting the arts, humanities and design with digital and ICT, then creativity and innovation can be enhanced.
An initial 2-year research and development project which mapped, measured and assisted Brighton’s creative, digital and IT cluster was carried out in 2013. The project was run by Wired Sussex, the University of Brighton, the University of Sussex and the Council of Industry & Higher Education. Brighton Fuse is funded by the Arts & Humanities Research Council.
The research proved invaluable in demonstrating the many ways in which the fusion of creative practice and technology was central to innovation and growth. With the goal of creating a physical manifestation of the Brighton Fuse research, Wired Sussex developed, designed and established The FuseBox.Download the Brighton Fuse Report
