Creative Freelancers Exchange

Are you a creative freelancer living or working in the Culture Mile area?

Would you like to exchange with other local creative freelancers, network and refine your skills?

Please join us! Culture Mile is hosting a series of online workshops & spaces of exchange for freelancers working in the creative and cultural industries to develop their skills, creative practice and wellbeing in our current situation.

COVID-19 has brought change, uncertainty and new ways of working for all sectors and we recognise this has significantly impacted freelancers in the creative industries. What have we learned and where are we now?
