Advance empowers creatives to realise their full potential and take their work to the next level
Advance is a new support programme for creative and cultural practitioners, freelancers and SMEs based in Wakefield and the wider Yorkshire Humber region.
Brought to you by Creative England, Advance is delivered in partnership with Wakefield Council and funded by The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport’s Cultural Development Fund grant, which is administered by Arts Council England.
Are you looking to forge your own career in the creative industries?
Do you need help with starting, growing or scaling a creative business/organisation?
Do you live, work or study in Wakefield or the wider Yorkshire Humber region?
If so, we want to hear from you!
Throughout the programme we will be coordinating opportunities for networking and group learning through workshops and events. We will also be supporting the local creative community by partnering with established festivals, conferences and events in the region.
See our list of upcoming events below. If you have an event coming up and you’d like Advance to get involved or if you require any information about the programme please contact us.
