Welcome to the Creative Cultures Scotland (CCS) web site If you are someone looking to find out about the creative industries in the North East of Scotland, or a practitioner looking to communicate with a wider audience or find out about opportunities, jobs and events? Creative Cultures Scotland is the place for you!
Creative Cultures Scotland has one goal – To help the Creative Sectors of the North East of Scotland. Help find opportunities, working partners, communicate with each other – and their audiences.
We believe that having a platform for communication will enhance the profile of all Creative Sectors of the North East of Scotland locally, nationally and internationally. It is our mission to provide effective communication channels for all practitioners and organisations to enable transparency and openness.
There are several key strands to our provision of communication lines for practitioners and audience:
Our Web site : Practitioners and Organisations have access to their own “profile page” – with links to Flickr, youTube, SoundCloud & blogging etc. Due to the scope of the CCS site – having a profile with CCS means you have an excellent chance of getting high returns on search engines. The Opportunities page is a wealth of information for practitioners to utilise, to find funding, calls for work & partnerships. With over 1500 hits a month – it’s well worth visiting! If you want to advertise an opportunity, we’d love to hear about it! Please send it to us (email@example.com) and, if suitable, we will publish it for you, free of charge.
Networking : Frequent networking events facilitated by CCS provide an excellent opportunity for the Creative Sectors to meet, discuss work, create new partnerships and work towards building a stronger and more sustainable. Previous networking events have resulted in wonderful stories of positive outcomes, so come along to the next one! Visit the networking page for more information.
Newsletters : Creative Cultures Scotland send out regular newsletters with upcoming events and opportunities. If you want to receive these emails – please subscribe to our newsletter.
Meetings : As part of our service, we try to represent practitioners by attending council & private meetings pertaining to the Cultural Sectors. If you wish to have anything raised, please contact us and we will endeavour to communicate your message to the right people.
Creative Cultures Scotland is an independent charity founded in 2006 to support the long term sustainability and growth of the creative and cultural sectors within the North East of Scotland, commencing as an joint ESF project in 2003 between Gray's School of Art and Aberdeen City Council.
Initially CCS was predominantly a web based service to support and globally promote local practitioners, but has since developed a strong human interaction service through the provision of networking events and one to one support sessions.
This site should be easy to use for practitioners, patrons and audiences alike. If you have any comments or suggestions, we’d love to hear from you. We are always looking to make improvements – and it is you, our members and audience that can help us achieve the best possible web site for your use. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org
