Real Creative Futures

NAE is home to Real Creative Futures, a transformational programme of FREE support for Nottingham's creative businesses and practitioners that ran from April 2014 until November 2015. Our aim: to see Nottingham's local creative community thrive.

Through a range of workshops, one to one activities and opportunities to share your work with industry experts, we help to explore new perspectives, drive creative success and build long-term networks that will continue to benefit businesses for years to come.
The programme is currently closed, but we are in the process of securing European and Arts Council funding to allow us to deliver it again to creative and digital businesses in Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire. If you want us to contact you when we open the programme again, please email and tell us about your business.
