Arts network in the Scottish Borders

Creative Arts Business Network

CABN supports the professional creative sector in the Scottish Borders through a programme of networking and training events, and delivers a range of opportunities including grant funding, residencies and showcase events – including PechaKucha Nights.

The focus of the project is on creative micro-businesses across all artforms, though we also engage with a range of organisations and partners to develop further projects and opportunities which support the development of the creative sector.

CABN provides up to date 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 socially engaged practice
  • 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 sources of support, including funders.
