​Introducing The Northern Creative Collective

​The Northern Creative Collective is a networking and support group for freelancers and small businesses in the creative and marketing industries in the North of England.

​The Northern Creative Collective was set up by Unhooked Communications MD, Claire Gamble, to help freelancers, small business owners and marketers ask for advice, learn and develop, share tips and knowledge, make connections and collaborate on projects.

As well as a closed Facebook group (which you can join here), we organise networking, seminar and workshop events. These cover everything from the practicalities of running your own business – such as accountancy, tax and legal issues – to marketing your services or products and growing your business. We also hear from talented creatives, journalists, entrpreneurs and marketers to inspire and inform our own businesses.

​Think of joining The Northern Creative Collective as the chance to become part of a virtual, integrated creative and marketing agency. The hope is by building our own network of creative, skilled and reliable freelancers and small businesses – including marketers, writers, designers, web developers, app developers, PRs, digital marketers, photographers, videographers, artists, event organisers, and more – we can join forces to:

  • ​learn from each other
  • check
    improve our offering to clients
  • check
    share work opportunities
  • check
    work together on bigger and more diverse projects.

We post regular updates on our blog, or you can join in the conversation on the Facebook group here.

​If you’re a business or individual who can help the creative and marketing freelance and small business community in the North somehow, please get in touch to discuss further.
