SECCADS Networking Events Opportunity

Date published: 30/11/2018

Full Story:

 Colchester Borough Council and Colchester Amphora Trading Ltd are seeking expressions of interest in providing an exciting, relevant and ambitious programme of networking events for the Creative, Cultural and Digital sector over a six month period. 
 
The South East Local Enterprise Partnership (SELEP) is the business-led, public/private body established to drive economic growth across East Sussex, Essex, Kent, Medway, Southend and Thurrock.
 
The LEP is one of 38 partnerships set up by the government to be the key body determining strategic economic priorities while making investments and delivering activities to drive growth and create local jobs.  Aware that the Creative, Cultural and Digital Sector does not tend to access mainstream business support, SELEP has supported the South East Creative Economy Network to develop the South East Creative Cultural & Digital Support Programme (SECCADS). SECCADS is designed to specifically attract and meet the needs of the sector.
 
The challenge is to provide a programme of events to take place over a six month period with a focus on developing opportunities for creative, cultural and digital businesses and individuals to meet in a learning and social capacity. Full deails here.
