On 14th December 2022 we hosted the first Crawley Creatives meetup. 14 professional creative practitioners who are based in, live or work regularly in West Sussex or Surrey got together to introduce themselves, share ideas and connect.
Musicians, DJs, visual artists, publishers, spoken word artists, architects, theatre makers and producers came together to begin a network of creatives based in West Sussex or Surrey.
This is part of a project funded by Arts Council England that seeks to celebrate and spotlight the professional creatives in Crawley, West Sussex and Surrey.
Since then we have held a range of other meetings and aim to meet quarterly.
We have alaso created a directory of local creatives that you can access here. And in April 2023 we curated an exhibtion to launch the website.
A huge thanks to EMW Law, Richard Place Dobson accountants and Crawley Borough Council for hosting the meetings in their buildings.
If you are a professional creative who lives, is based in or grew up in West Sussex or Surrey please email [email protected] for more details.
