There are a couple of great opportunities coming up for Newcastle’s creative community, whether you’re looking to learn, network or show off your stuff!

Newcastle & Beyond: Taking Your Creative Enterprise to the World

Presented by Renew Newcastle, this is a series of three events designed to educate & inspire you to take your creative business to the next level. The first of these professional development forums, called ‘Home Is Where The Heart Is’, is tomorrow, Wednesday, 25 May and will be led by the fashion designers behind High Tea With Mrs Woo. If you’re interested in building a boutique enterprise in Newcastle, don’t miss this! The discussion will include using Newcastle as a home base, the pros & cons of being based in a regional area, building and maintaining business relationships & connections, growing a sustainable business and who to ask for help. As well as a presentation and discussion, there will also be ample networking opportunity.

The remaining two events will take place on 22 June & 20 July, covering online business and taking your business to the world, respectively. Speakers will include Zac Zavos of Conversant Media & Renew Newcastle founder Marcus Westbury.

The best news for local creatives is that these events are all FREE! All that’s required is that you RSVP. All three forums will take place between 5:30 - 7:30pm at the Renew Newcastle HQ (3 Morgan St, Newcastle - just off Hunter St Mall near One Penny Black).

Helen Henry grew up in Newcastle, and in 2010 graduated with a Bachelor of Communication from the local University. This was pleasing because it made her officially qualified to communicate about the things she likes most: music and the music industry, photography, digital, cute animals and her friends & family. Most recently, Helen worked as a Digital Projects Assistant at Sticky Advertising and was Editor of Urban Insider. She has recently landed a pretty sweet gig working in the music industry in Sydney.
