Channel 4 has announced they are opening a “Creative Hub” in Glasgow as part of their national relocation plans.
Channel 4’s decision to create regional hub in Glasgow is welcomed as a major boost for Scotland’s creative sector, bringing about 50 jobs will be based in the city, including key decision-makers with significant spending power.
Glasgow has an incredibly well-established and vibrant independent production sector with strengths across a number of different programme genres. Establishing a new Creative Hub in the city will bring Channel 4 commissioners even closer to key production partners in the Glasgow and help develop the production and creative sector across Scotland. There is also the opportunity to exploit the strong connection with Belfast and develop deeper links with the production sector in Northern Ireland.
Locating a Creative Hub in Glasgow also enables Channel 4 to harness the city’s rich cultural diversity, to further improve on-screen representation, and to work with the sector and the region’s educational establishments to grow the pipeline of new talent into the production and broadcast industries.
The creative hub will have a focus on programme commissioning, but will “welcome a broader talent base later on”.
Alex Mahon, Channel 4 Chief Executive said: “Glasgow has a well-established production sector across multiple genres, and locating a Creative Hub in the city will give Channel 4 the opportunity to tap into the rich cultural diversity of Scotland and also allow us to exploit the city’s strong connectivity with Belfast and the Northern Ireland production sector.”
