About Creative Shropshire
Creative Shropshire is a network of Shropshire-based creative professionals working at a commercial level. Our members generally work in the business side of the creative industry rather than that which is involved in the arts.
The group aims to nurture and support the creative industry, providing publicity, networking and identifying opportunities for the members.
Creative Shropshire was initiated by Steve Ashdown of Phoot Creative. Steve recognized the lack of networking opportunities and support services for like-minded creative individuals in the County.
Along with a small group of other creative professionals from a range of commercial backgrounds, and the valued support of Shrewsbury and Atcham Borough Council, Creative Shropshire was established and officially launched at the Music Hall, Shrewsbury, in February 2006.
Today, we have developed into a sizable group with regular meetings, exhibitions and an active website.
At our monthly networking meetings we aim to provide an opportunity for creative consultants to get together in a friendly, informal and supportive environment to learn from each other, share ideas and collaborate on projects as needed.
