To launch Creative Dorset we held breakfast network meetings in May in Blandford, Bridport, Sherborne and Poole. Over 140 people working in a huge variety of creative industries attended to find out what we are about and how we might help them. The response was amazingly positive and dynamic so now we are holding Creative Teas in different corners of the county to enable more people to get together and help those who find it difficult to function so early! If you would like to join us for a free cream tea and to hear from some of the people who can provide training and support for you, let us know as soon as possible.
All of the teas will run from 4-6pm and the dates are:
July 11- Sundeck Room, Weymouth Pavilion
July 16 - The Blue Pool Tea House, Wareham
July 18 - The Boathouse Restaurant, on the Quay at Christchurch
July 19 - The Enterprise Connection, Poundbury
Please pass this on to anyone else who works in a creative business – if you are not sure what that includes there is a definition below. If you have a burning issue, or question, or service you would like to share at the Creative Tea please email us and we will try to accommodate you.
