The Creative Data Academy will show you how data, insight and information are harnessed by people in the creative industries to craft beautiful, memorable experiences.

Our three-day programmes are built for aspiring marketers with interests in data and insight.

Anyone can attend, we just ask that you have a real interest in data and are 18 or over by the first day of your selected academy. It doesn’t matter what you’re studying or what year you’re in. Past academy delegates have studied a wide range of subjects from Marketing and Business to English, Psychology, Physics, Maths, Computer Science and Biochemistry.


At an Academy you will:

  • Work on a marketing brief for a famous brand using data and analytics – and pitch your response to the client on the last day.
  • Get inside the real-world of creative data with talks and Q&As with established industry data and creative thinking practitioners.
  • Visit a marketing agency to explore how brands use data to develop their business strategies - and discover what agency life is like.
  • Head to a meet and mingle session and make friends and contacts to help you grow your connections.

The academy is free to attend, and lunch is provided.

Leeds, 22-24 April 2020
