Creative Support Service

Creative Insight is the most exciting and innovative creative support service in Britain. We can support any individual from the first spark of an idea, to developing their craft, reaching a commercial market and making a sustainable living within their chosen field.

The team is totally committed to helping any individual, business start-up, or established company, develop and grow within the creative industries sector. We act as facilitators and providers for whatever support you require to get you to where you want to go, at whatever level you chose to enter your market at. Our aim is to make sure you make money from your creativity.

Creative Pathways 

Creative Insight and Equal

The Creative Insight team have been able to assist Equal beneficiaries with their Creative Pathways programme helping
in a number of different and exciting ways.

As well as a bespoke research service and business advice agency, the team have been able to offer a variety of showcase and practical business opportunities. For example we have staged 70 music gigs across the city and provided musicians with the opportunity to appear on a 5 volume series of Creative Insight taster albums released on local label Gotham Records. Similarly, Gotham head Barry Tomes continues to provide weekly advice classes on the music business in addition to a recently completed series of master classes. Similarly the department has organised advice classes for studio techniques and film making skills which have run alongside our monthly cinema nights at the Library Theatre. We have also set up 2 permanent art galleries in the building, which provide our beneficiaries with the opportunity to place their art in a public space. In a similar fashion we have provided our beneficiaries with an online presence through the creation of several directories on our website.

We’ve left it to one of our recipients to sum up the impact of our scheme ...

“I did receive about 2000% more opportunities through being a member of the creative pathways scheme and I truly believe that if Birmingham is to provide healthy competition with London and Dublin for Creative opportunities then we should have more schemes like Creative pathways.  I have networked at EVERY SINGLE creative event I have attended, WONDERFUL!”
