Tamily Cookson, interim CEO of the Creative Quarter

“In my new role as UK Council member to the Creative UK Group, I am looking forward to working for an organisation that will be a champion for the creative sector, affecting change both here in Nottingham and nationally. In my work for the Creative Quarter, I advocate daily for Nottingham’s creative industries and emphasise how vital they are to the city’s growth; I want their impact on the economy to be recognised nationally, and for their future to be supported. Being part of the UK Council for the Creative UK Group is a responsibility I am proud to take on, and I look forward to working with the creative community in our city and beyond to tackle the issues facing our sector.”
