Creative Industries Federation


The Creative Industries Federation is the membership body which represents, champions and supports the UK’s creative industries.

Through our unique network of creative organisations, our influential policy and advocacy work and our extensive, UK-wide events programme we support and celebrate the work of our members. 

Our membership network comprises more than 10,000 individuals from creative organisations, businesses and educational institutions throughout the UK.

We are influential advocates on the issues that matter most to our creative community; creative careers and skills, the impact of Brexit and the importance of entrepreneurship and growth.

We bring together our members to facilitate valuable connections and collaborations that generate new ideas and foster both artistic and commercial successes.

By protecting the success of our sector, the fastest growing in the UK, we contribute to the strength of the UK economy as a whole.

Independent. Authoritative. Fearless.
