Yorkshire’s thriving creative industry is to receive a boost with the introduction of a new task force.

The ‘Creative Leeds’ task force aims to consolidate the importance of the sector and provide opportunities for more growth and inward investment.

Data shows there are 113,400 people employed in digital and new media businesses.

Businesses within the region’s growing creative and digital industries will also be able to share knowledge and expertise.

Figures released by regional development agency Yorkshire Forward show employment in the sector has grown by 16 per cent, making it one of the fastest growing regions in the UK. Data from the group shows there are 113,400 people employed in digital and new media businesses.

Organisations involved in the new task force include Leeds City Council, Yorkshire Forward, Screen Yorkshire, Leeds College of Art, Leeds Arts Partnership, Leeds Media, Leeds Chamber of Commerce and Arts Council England, Yorkshire.

Chaired by Steve Smith, Dean of the Faculty of Media and Design Communications at Leeds College of Art, the group will embark on a fact finding mission to Barcelona to find out how to position the city at the heart of the European creative industry.

Mr Smith said: “The creative and digital industries sector is a vital part of the city’s cultural offer and its offer as a business location.” He added that investment by public sector bodies has already played an important role in helping Leeds rise to prominence in an already strong sector within the UK.

In further evidence of the UK’s excellent standing within the creative industry, a Batman-themed video game has been recognised at the Bafta Video Game Awards in London. ‘Batman: Arkham Asylum’ picked up the ‘Best Game’ award, and also won the ‘Gameplay’ award.

Another game developed in the UK, ‘Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’, took the public-voted ‘GAME’ award.
