The Guild is working with Knowle West Media Centre, Spike Island, UWE Bristol and Watershed to support aspiring creatives across the West of England to build a sustainable living from their ideas.

We are each offering residency opportunities with free space and a package of business development support for creative and cultural entrepreneurs. By bringing together expertise from fine art to fabrication to creative technology, we are better equipped to share resources and provide business development opportunities to the creative sector.

Network for Creative Enterprise enables the group of partners to offer tailored events, workshops and mentoring for individuals and small enterprises to support their business development from the idea stage through to start-up and onto growth.


If you are interested in joining one of the other three hubs please visit their websites and contact or we can put you in touch via The Guild:
