Creative Bedfordshire has secured funding from Bedford Borough Council for another year of delivery in Bedford Borough. The networking group for creative professionals run by Bedford Creative Arts aims to support the development of creative skills, new enterprise and business development of the creative sector in Bedfordshire.

Meetings are informal but informative and are well attended by those who are working in the creative industries. Meetings take place on the evening of the first Thursday of every month and are held alternately in Bedford Borough and Central Bedfordshire. They are free to attend.

‘The network is coming of age’ says Kayte Judge, Curator Producer at Bedford Creative Arts ‘It has steadily become stronger over the past few years and attracts a vibrant mix of people from the creative sector. Our aim is for meetings to be both fun and useful. Now we have secured funding for another year we will add a formal professional development strand in order to further help creative professionals to develop and sustain their creative businesses here in Bedfordshire.’

Meetings often mix speakers from the creative sector, such as film director Richard Jobson, and designer Max McMurdo with those offering business support such as Wenta, Velocity Growth Hub and the Chamber of Commerce. There are ample opportunities to share your own projects or work with the group.

The next Creative Bedfordshire meeting takes place on the 5th June between 7 – 10 pm at The George and Dragon, Mill Street, Bedford. Find them on facebook and twitter .

Opinion: Which tribe are you?
