Great news for creatives to kick-off the new year

Creativity in the West of England

The start of 2022 has brought some fantastic news for sixty creative businesses and freelancers across the West of England.

The theatres, fashion designers, artists, animation studios, circus performers, publishers, musicians and marketing agencies are all being given professional support to help them recover from the impact of the pandemic and grow their business.

They’re the latest cohort of creatives to benefit from the West of England Combined Authority’s Creative Sector Growth Programme which is run in partnership with the Watershed.

The successful businesses will be supported to improve their resilience for a minimum of six months with:

  • £3,000 - £6,000 of professional expertise (mentoring, coaching and/or consultancy)
  • A series of peer group sessions which will bring groups of 10 businesses together regularly to address their shared challenges and learn from each other.
  • Access to workshops and training delivered by Watershed.
