"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."

"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."
