CREATE> will provide practical guidance on how practitioners and organizations can move to the next level in their development – identifying bottlenecks in terms of skills, knowledge and contacts and finding creative ways to move practitioners and their organizations forwards. One of the themes of CREATE is redefining the mainstream.  We aspire to play a full part in nurturing home-grown talent to be seen in the regionally, nationally and internationally.

CREATE> will be running two programs from now until September 2018.

Networking events. Diverse inspirational speakers will join us for an evening as focus for getting together a broad mix of people from the sector. Strong networks are seen as a catalyst for creating new and exciting opportunities and making things happen.
