Welcome to Nottingham’s first professional online creative network. It has been months in the making and is now taking shape.
Historically, Nottingham is steeped in creative heritage, from textiles to writers to musicians, and complimenting our rich history, is a backdrop of political and social reform in which Nottingham has been pivotal. Today, walking around our city centre, it is hard to believe we have a legacy, let alone one we can shout about. With deserted outlets, dilapidated buildings and a distinct lack of the boutique era that we once enjoyed, people are opting to 'stay at home' rather than venture out, worst still people are opting to leave the city in search of excitement.
Pop Up Nottingham is designed to instigate a collaborative support network that will allow Nottingham’s creative spirit to thrive, grow, and lead through innovation. It is a concept that will pull together the counties creative industries and regenerate our cities high-streets.
Over the coming weeks we will start to familiarise you with all the benefits you receive as a member of the site, including your shop facility, access to free business workshops, and regular face to face networking events. We will also take some time to introduce you to our effervescent team of individuals who are all pioneering creative's in their own field.
We welcome musicians, artists, crafters, writers, photographers, filmmakers, foodies and fashion designers, with more to come. Pop Up Nottingham is about embracing originality, innovation and adventure, so if you have any ideas about ways that we can improve our services please do not hesitate to get in touch.
It is an exciting time to be creative and ambitious in the city of Nottingham, so make sure you tell your friends to join the revolution.
