Creative Bedford Spins Its Web

Friday 11th June 2010

 

CREATIVE BEDFORDSHIRE SPINS ITS WEB

 

What started as a small group of creative people who would meet on a monthly basis in a local pub, has now grown into a thriving network for creative industries with a brand new website launched on Thursday 3rd June.

The original Creative Bedfordshire group and its website came into existence in 2008. It now links together over 150 creative sector businesses and individuals and the new website aims to develop the sector further.

‘Creative Bedfordshire’ offers the creative sector a unique environment in which to promote its business and keep track of what's going on across Bedford’s, and Bedfordshire’s, creative scene. It provides an essential platform to help creative businesses and individuals work together and promote themselves.

Local creatives ranging from individual artists to substantial businesses, should benefit from the creation of this new website, which has received funding and support from Bedford Borough Council (£12,500) and Central Bedfordshire Council (£5,000).

 

The Mayor of Bedford Borough, Dave Hodgson, said: “Creative Bedfordshire will be hugely valuable to the arts sector and the wider creative business community in Bedford and Bedfordshire. Acting as a hub for ideas, networking and development, it will serve to promote Bedfordshire’s creative sector potential both locally and further afield.”
