We have been lucky enough to be selected as one of the twelve North East Scottish companies to be accepted on to the Creative Accelerator Programme this summer. The project is ran by the Look Again Festival and Innovations@RGU.
There’s a great video on RGU’s Linked In page that sums up the project well, see it here - VIDEO
Basically this is a great opportunity for creative businesses to learn more about the business side of things, the thing we tend to hide from. With workshops and discussions we will come out the end of the program with a more solid understanding of how to run and grow our businesses sustainably. Brilliant right?! Hopefully this program runs for many years to come, as it’s definitely what’s needed in the area!
We are taking part in the project with these brilliant folks –
Lynne’s Loom - Lynne Mennie
Autism in Women and Girls through the Arts - Lindsay Gavine
Creative Me Podcast - Ica Headlam
Catherine Park Illustrator - Catherine Park
Prolong Bags - Lucia Gasparidesova
Dancing Along the Borderline – Lynne Shaw
Science on a Postcard - Heidi Gardner
Bairns - Debbie McLeod and Steph Davidson
The Bread Box – Shae Myles
Some of these creative I’ve met before and some I’ve not but its been great getting to know them. We’ve been through the business bootcamp and now its book reading, canvas writing and thought processing in time for the next workshop.
