A great example of curating content rather than necessarily creating it all: #createuk has been a week-long digital campaign by the Dept for Culture, Media and Sport, combining Twitter, Flickr, YouTube and Pinterest to curate and celebrate the UK’s creative industries:

Monday 30 June to Friday 4 July, we’ll be celebrating the phenomenal success of the UK Creative Industries in a week long digital event.

The UK’s Creative Industries generate a staggering £8 million per hour for the UK economy and continues to go from strength-to-strength. Together with the industry, we’ll be using #CreateUK to champion the success of the sector, explore the employment opportunities and look at what makes the UK’s creative industries so exceptional. The week will include video interviews, Twitter debates, blogs and graphics.

Every day of #CreateUK week we will shine a spotlight on a particular sector within the industry and hold an hour long chat on Twitter. Running between 1pm and 2pm, you can join the conversation each day by using the hashtag #CreateUKhour – if you work in the industry, why not come and tell us your thoughts. We want to see as many people involved as possible.
