Voluntary Arts has set up a new online network to connect anyone working, volunteering or participating in all forms of creativity in the West Midlands region. Creative Network West Midlands monthly sessions offer the opportunity to meet and connect with peers from across the region, as well as receive expert advice, support, information and inspiration from guest speakers in each session.

You can join the dedicated Facebook group here, to share ideas, continue conversations, and share your creativity. This is also a great place to suggest topics for CNWM sessions, so that we can ensure they are relevant and responsive to the needs of creatives in the region. If you do not use Facebook, you are welcome to suggest topics and connect with us by emailing [email protected]

We meet once a month on Zoom, focusing on a different topic each time. There is also the potential for us to schedule additional sub-group sessions that are topic specific, if and when they are needed.-------------


Coming up this month...

Are you a member of a creative group in Walsall or Worcestershire? Take part in our bespoke zoom session on Tuesday 6th April 2:30-3:30pm: Crowdfunding with Spacehive, with special guest, Stephanie Allen from Arts & Heritage.

Creative Network West Midlands and Spacehive are collaborating on a series of free workshop as part of 2 crowdfunding initiatives in partnership with local authorities in Walsall and Worcestershire.

We will be joined by Frank Kibble from Spacehive, who will explain how these programmes in Worcestershire and Walsall will become a springboard for locally-led ideas to attract funding more easily.

And West Midlands Development Officer for Voluntary Arts, Nicola Winstanley, will be on hand to give bespoke support on creative engagement and community action.

We will also be joined by Stephanie Allen from Arts & Heritage, who will share tips and advice on approaching Heritage Projects- a theme specified in the Walsall initiative.

This first workshop will be an opportunity to find out more about the initiative and how it could work for your project. Come along with project ideas at any stage of development, or use this meeting as a space to find the partnership you need to get your project off the ground!
