Creativeworks London presents:
Creativeworks London 1st Annual Creative Entrepreneurs-in-Residence Scheme Information Event
This exciting initiative is being developed to support Cultural, Creative and Creative Digital sector entrepreneurs who are interested in undertaking a short-term residency with one of Creativeworks London’s research partners. The residencies will be focussed on supporting entrepreneurs to work with the research community to assist in the development of new ideas, projects and products and/or to develop solutions to particular business needs.
Full guidelines about the nature of the scheme, eligible activities and details about the overall application process and deadline will be made available at this event. This information will also be available online by 5th February. (Small grants are available for successful applicants).
The event will additionally provide:
- A brief overview of the Creativeworks London Programme.
- An ‘in conversation’ with entrepreneurs who are already working with alongside academic partners, including; Martyn Ware (CEO, Illustrious Productions) Professor Mark Sandler (Queen Mary, University of London) and Tomoko Azumi (TNA Design Studio).
- A chance to network and talk to the Creativeworks London team about the scheme.
As space is very limited we would strongly encourage anyone interested in applying for the scheme and/or in hosting the scheme to RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible. A full agenda will be distributed in advance of the event.
This is a brand new initiative and we are keen to involve you, we would welcome your input into shaping this scheme whether you are a Creative Entrepreneur or from one of Creativeworks London’s research organisations. As such we have designed a short questionnaire which we encourage you to complete if you wish to attend this event.
