A networking and listening event to celebrate and support the cultural and creative sectors in Newport and central Wight is coming to Newport Minster, St Thomas’ Square, on Monday 17th June 6pm-7.30pm.

Creative Island is developing a series of creative hubs across the Island with the ambition of encouraging collaboration, sharing resources and information, and identifying common ambitions within the sector.

Having established the first of these in Ryde and West Wight, and starting an equivalent grouping in Cowes, we are keen to initiate a conversation with Newport and those working centrally on the Island.

Book your place
This initial meeting at Newport Minster, is for anyone who is curious about how the work they do contributes to the quality of Newport and central Wight.

To reserve your place, book your free ticket here via Eventbrite.
