Are you a Creative Business in Northern Ireland?
Do you want to expand your business portfolio to access new markets?
Do you have the capacity to take on new projects?
4CNW Talent is a new fund to encourage Businesses to collaborate with a Creative Partner
We invite Creative Suppliers to register their interest in accessing the fund by applying for the 4CNW Creative Directory and business support programme today. Applications will remain open until the 8th March 2013 at 12 noon.
Businesses in Northern Ireland will be sponsored to innovate their products, services or processes and matched with an appropriate creative partner to help solve their innovation challenge.
Successful challenge applications will receive a Creative Talent Voucher worth between €1,000 and €5,000, that they will match fund creating a commissioning pot of up to €10,000 per project. Businesses will use the voucher to commission the services of a creative enterprise such as a designer, artist, craftsperson, film producer, actor, musician, game developers etc. who can offer new areas of expertise to help solve a particular business challenge. The Creative Supplier ultimately selected by the business to solve their challenge will be paid directly by them, and both parties will agree the contract in advance.
Additionally, all applicants who register for the 4CNW Creative Directory will have the option to automatically sign up to the European How to Grow platform, where members can access services and tools specifically designed to meet the needs of creative professionals and creative businesses.
The 4CNW Creative Directory will be published in June 2013.
