Call for Expressions of Interest: Host Organisations required for two-year Creative Business Incubation

14 July 2006

Every Host organisation has something valuable to offer their individual placement designer or artist and the Scheme, from specialist equipment to industry contacts and knowledge. Running for the last 13 years, the two-year Scheme offers rent-free workspaces and specialist equipment, business advice, a workshop programme and specialist business consultancy to Small to Medium Sized Enterprise (SME) designer-makers, new media, multi-media and visual artists who wish to establish a business in the North West.

The new programme, with eight potential placements in Greater Manchester only, will start formal recruitment at the beginning of July 2006 for suitable Host Organisations. Successful Hosts will then be involved in the Artist recruitment in September. Placements will run from October 2006 - September 2008.
