Fusion, the Hangzhou-Nottingham Cultural & Creative Industry Exchange Centre at Sneinton Market has re-opened.

February 9th 2020

The Creative Quarter has agreed with Nottingham City Council to re-open and run Fusion, the Hangzhou-Nottingham Cultural & Creative Industry Exchange Centre (on Avenue C at Sneinton Market), on behalf of the city of Hangzhou in China.

The City of Hangzhou, where a number of Sneinton Market tenants and other Nottingham creatives have attended the Creative Industries Fair, have invested in Fusion to help;

  • Hangzhou creative businesses access UK markets
  • Nottingham creative businesses access Chinese markets
  • Creative individuals from each city to meet, share ideas and collaborate
  • Citizens of Hangzhou and Nottingham become more aware of the high quality of each city’s creative products and businesses
  • Increase cultural exchange between Hangzhou and Nottingham

The Creative Quarter re-opened Fusion for Light Night on February 7th. It will now open for a minimum of 25 hours each week, including on Saturdays. On display is a fabulous range of high-quality products from Hangzhou, some of which are available too buy.

A Gallery and Cultural Centre Assistant has joined the Creative Quarter team to manage and maintain Fusion as an exhibition and retail space and as a venue for creative business events and meetings and to encourage creative and cultural exchange between Nottingham and Hangzhou.

Fusion will also stock a range of products from businesses based at Sneinton Market and other selected Nottingham creatives and will from time to time showcase art and other creative work.
