StoryFutures Creative Cluster
StoryFutures works with businesses in the Gateway Cluster and Greater London to support and fund innovation in next-generation storytelling formats and technologies. The 'Gateway Cluster' lies immediately to the west of London.
We exist to fuel innovation and growth in immersive storytelling by sharing cutting-edge research with creative SMEs. We also foster collaborations between world-leading institutions, creative industries and sources of funding.
With joint commissioning partners like the National Gallery, BBC Studios and Heathrow Airport, we aim to innovate in story-form, evolve business models, develop data management processes, enhance audience experiences and help SMEs secure funding for growth.
We welcome interest in our programmes from companies across the breadth of the Gateway Cluster and Greater London. The Gateway Cluster is shown in blue on the map below.
For London-based companies, please note that our remit to support growth in the Gateway Cluster region:
1. Prioritises companies local to the region;
2. Is open to London-based applications able to demonstrate a willingness to collaborate and invest in the Cluster region. Examples of such commitments include hiring cluster-based subcontractors/freelancers, delivering workshops for cluster-based organisations, or offering support in other ways.
