Take a bow (tie)
March 21st, 2006
Do you want to go along to the Oscars and wear big bow ties like those Aardman Animations fellas?
Of course you do.And now you can (terms and conditions apply), thanks to a new business support scheme.
Creative businesses in the South West will soon be able to access tailored support through the Creative Enterprise Gateway to ensure they match their artistic flair with good old-fashoined business know-how.
The South West of England Regional Development Agency (RDA) is investing mega-bucks in the initiative, which will support a wide variety of companies: from arts and crafts businesses, to advertising, antiques and architecture firms.
It will also provide a hotline giving advice through the Business Link service and directing callers to more specialised support when needed.
Culture South West is managing the project and Business West is delivering the scheme. Project partners include Arts Council England South West, South West Screen, Arts Matrix and Business Link.
A series of shindigs will be held in June to promote the Creative Enterprise Gateway to companies and highlight its launch. For more details contact Jessica Valentine on .
See you at next year’s Oscars! Possibly!
