Event description

Description

If you're a creative or cultural business, Christmas is probably your the busiest time of year. Come and join the Creative Fuse North East team in the New Year at Durham University for a well-earned reward, a chance to reflect, and an opportunity to look ahead to exciting new opportunities that you might take advantage of in 2018.

Many smaller and rural creative businesses can feel isolated. We're working with some of the 'hubs' that play host to a range of creative businesses - like markets, museums, and craft centres - to present support activities tailored to your needs. But we really want to hear what will work best for your business.

This event will give you a chance to shape our programme of support in the New Year, and to learn more about the opportunities already available to you. You will mingle with artists and other support organisations with different perspectives and experiences, and view some of the amazing art that emerges from our region.
