Fusion, the Nottingham and Hangzhou Cultural & Creative Industry Exchange Centre is a gallery space at Sneinton Market Avenues that encourages exchange between creative businesses in Nottingham and Hangzhou in China.

Nottingham City Council has created a creative and digital incubator space at Sneinton Market and supports the Creative Quarter Company as an economic development agency that encourages the start-up and the growth of creative and digital businesses all over Nottingham and all types of businesses in Nottingham’s Creative Quarter.

Since May 2018, Sneinton Market has been home to Fusion, the Hangzhou Cultural & Creative Industry Exchange Centre, where products of some of Hangzhou’s creative businesses and artists are exhibited and which Hangzhou creative businesses wanting to explore the UK market can use as a launch pad. In the future Fusion will also be used to showcase and promote the work of Nottingham based creative businesses and individuals.
