Upcoming Events Newcastle Creatives Should Attend
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).
