Creative Arts Business Network (CABN)

Creative Arts Business Network (CABN)

CABN supports the professional creative sector across the Borders through a programme of bespoke networking, training and professional development events, and creates opportunities including grant funding, residencies and showcase events - including PechaKucha Nights.

Although the focus of the project is on creative micro-businesses across all artforms, we also engage with, and provide support to organisations and community groups, and work with a range of partners to develop further opportunities.

CABN supports primarily through its core function as a Network – providing information relevant to the creative sector through the CABN website, weekly e-bulletin and Social Media.

CABN supports:

• Visual arts (including film)
• Crafts & Design
• Literature
• Performing arts (dance, drama)
• Music
• Public art and community engagement
• Business to business creative services (graphic design, marketing, etc.)

CABN Leader Mary Morrison can be contacted for advice by individual practitioners, small businesses and arts organisations, as well as groups developing arts related activities including hubs, workspaces, events and festivals. Mary can also signpost you to other organisations and support.

CABN sends out a weekly bulletin highlighting a range of events and opportunities relevant to the creative sector. Contact to join the mailing list.
