http://www.creativeculturescotland.co.uk/ is a Registered Charity (#SC037834) set up to promote, help and sustain creative practitioners, organisations and venues in the North East of Scotland. Our main goal is to create an extensive and holistic directory of creative people in the North East of Scotland – showcasing the amazing and varied talent “up here”.

We cater for the ‘spectrum’ of creative practices (craft, design, education, enterprise, music, media, performing arts, visual arts and written word), catering for amateurs and professionals. Our free on-line directory is easy to use, giving you the ability to add images, statements and contact details, as well as linking to third party content you might be managing, saving you time and effort, knowing your profile will be as current as your existing web based content. We also offer a free blogging tool – so you can have an easily distributed, standardised format for telling people what you are up to. Blogging already? fear not! Simply link / embed your RSS feed into your CCS profile, and bingo – your Profile page will update automatically when you blog elsewhere!

We also maintain this WordPress Blog as a resource for news and opportunities – from Funding News to networking night announcements, we are always trying to provide a useful stream of information for creatives in the North East of Scotland.

We also run networking nights, a chance for our members to meet and discuss new ideas, work and projects. Always informal, and well received, Our networking events have provided grounds for new work, partnerships and announcements, again, free to attend… with the added bonus of some wine and nibbles… Check out the CCS website for full details and list of Events up and coming.

If you would like to help Creative Cultures Scotland, or have any suggestions, please don’t hesitate to get in contact with us. We’re here to help!

    Hello,

    I’ve been following you on twitter and i was wondering if you could help me. I’m a post grad fashion studen from Manchester school of Art, Following university and a lack of freelance work i decided to set up my own company. I have created a database for freelance and other creative professionals to upload their work and their CV. Its is completely free to upload and is designed to put creatives in touch with each other and hiring companies in direct contact them. In doing this i hope to abolish steep fees creatives pay out to agencies.

    I launch my wesite in two weeks and what to get as much momentum behind me as possible. Would it be possible for you to post a blog or tweet about my project making creatives aware of what is going on?

    Kind Regards Nia
