To enable the growing creative sector in Lowestoft to reach its full potential and attract further investment, a new virtual hub has been launched.
Developed in response to feedback to the council’s Cultural Strategy, ‘Celebrating Culture on the Edge’, and funded by Arts Council England, the Virtual Creative Hub will provide creatives with a way to network, feel more connected and access information, training and funding opportunities.
With many creative people and enterprises already working and living in Lowestoft and even more being drawn to the area, the Virtual Creative Hub will help to strengthen and grow the creative sector, bringing creatives together through social media channels and an emerging place website, which will be launched later this summer.
The Hub is open to creatives who are based in Lowestoft or deliver work in the town, and will feature a programme of training, tool kits, networking sessions and bespoke 1-2-1 support. Additionally a free Cultural Directory is in development which will sit on our new website, allowing organisations and creatives to promote their enterprises in one central place.
