What is Durham Creatives?

We support emerging artists and creative practitioners who want to make money from their talents and start or grow businesses.

We have supported over one hundred artists and creative practitioners to start and grow new businesses in County Durham and across the North East.

WE ARE CURRENTLY DEVELOPING A NEW WEBSITE TO ENCOMPASS ALL OF OUR WORK ACROSS THE NORTH EAST. WHAT YOU CAN SEE WILL GIVE YOU A FLAVOUR OF WHAT WE DO BUT FOR MORE INFORMATION PLEASE CONTACT:

What we do

The nature of what we can offer changes over time as new opportunities emerge (like now!) and we secure funding to run events and workshops, and provide one-to-one mentoring support. We also deliver bespoke projects to create commercial opportunities and have collaborated successfully with the likes of Baltic, Sage Gateshead, Durham Cathedral, Durham DLI Art Gallery, Digital Durham, the National Glass Centre, Beamish Museum and Bowes Museum.

This spring Jane Shaw is devloping a new programme of workshops with Business Durham, Bowes Museum, Durham University and East Durham Creates. The workshops will is open to all and we’ll post more information about them on our new website as soon as we can.

If you wish to be sure you’re alerted to what’s happening through our newsletter please register your interest with Jane at jane@peopleintoenterprise.com
