Meetdraw: Dorset creative industries networking

"Meetdraw is a meeting of digital animals to talk about and share collective passions. For everyone, no matter what they do or what stage they are in their career. It's for us by us. At times aided by beer, we shall fuel creativity, ideas and inspiration in a relaxed informal and fun environment. ... We support the local (Dorset) creative economy and provide an independent, neutral and open platform for communication and development."

(Paul Seys, 7 December 2009)

Nottingham Second Wednesday: gathering for creative industries professionals

"What is it? Second Wednesday is a gathering of people from the web and related creative industries. Originally founded nearly fourteen years ago for business directories to blow off steam, it's grown into an event open to anyone in the industry and provided the networking platform for several up and comers in the Nottingham scene. Anyone is welcome, as the event is free, and you'll always find someone interesting to talk to each time you attend.

When and where? We gather every Second Wednesday of the month at Antenna, it's that easy. Just come along at anytime (before 7pm if you want to see the speaker) and feel free to jump straight in and introduce yourself to get the conversation started. We're there until 9pm so if you're late don't worry – they'll be plenty of people around until the end."

(Jamie Huskisson and Chris Allwood)

Professional and Business Development for the Creative Ecology

"The first book in this series, Fish, Horses and Other Animals: Professional and Business Development for the Creative Ecology was designed to deal with issues concerning creative networks – how to understand them, work with them, mutually develop them and grow your creativity and business within them. We thought this was a good place to start because many creative industry practitioners already live and work within creative networks, and instinctively know how vital they can be in all sorts of ways. We ended Fish, Horses and Other Animals, on the theme of Soul Food."

––How to Make Friends and Influence People–The importance of networks and network development. How do you get good at networking and why?

––Who Do I Get Into Bed With–Having recognised the value of networks and collaborations for creative business, how do you use these relationship to their best advantage?

––Don't Get Ripped Off–What do you need to know and do protect yourself and get paid properly?

––More Than Just Beer Money?–What are the opportunities, issues and added pressures associated with going from creative business as a 'lifestyle' choice, to growing your business into something bigger?

––Soul Food–How do you 'refresh' the creativity bit of your business to prevent stagnation?

Nottingham Creative Network aims to address all these issues in a way that connects tangible advice for business growth and development with discussions of these issues that are relevant for the specific of the creative industries. We realise that sometimes the creative industries operate in quite distinctive ways. We come from the creative industries ourselves. We will be holding regular expert seminars and workshops, offering 1–to–1 surgeries and responding to the needs of the creative community in other flexible ways when opportunities arise."
