The Institute for Creativity and Technology opened in May 2021. London's new work space for the creative industries can be found in the Design District, right next to Ravensbourne University London on the Greenwich Peninsula.
Ravensbourne’s new Institute for Creativity and Technology is a future-focused home of experimentation, connection and collaboration.
Led by a diverse community of ethical thinkers, creators and disruptors, it is a place where hi-tech collides with lo-tech and no-tech. It provides a space for leading-edge design and media practice to explore new frontiers in a unique culture of innovation.
At its heart the Institute is an ecosystem of professional partnerships, industry networks, business incubation and an internationally recognised transdisciplinary team.
Whether you are looking to upskill, retrain, reach beyond executive boundaries, or provoke innovation change – this is a destination for inspiration.
Come join us. You will grow your skills and nurture ideas while expanding your capacity for daring leadership and business development.
Students learn and create in a custom-designed study space with movable walls, standing and seated desks, tables for making and meeting, and flexible spaces for talks and seminars.
Our students have access to the Institute’s prototyping facilities, virtual reality/augmented reality and mixed reality labs, research labs, Incubation+ and dedicated events and exhibition space.
