Create North is a enterprise development organisation working within the cultural sector.
We design and deliver enterprise interventions that facilitate economic growth and cultural innovation.
We achieve this by delivering projects large and small to support connectivity across the sector and build the capacities of creative practitioners and arts organisations to fully exploit commercial and creative opportunities available to them.
Our work is commissioned by economic, cultural and educational development organisations across the North East region. Many of these have been delivered in collaboration with successful artists and organisations such as Baltic, Sage Gateshead, Durham Cathedral, Digital Durham, Bowes Museum, East Durham Creates and Durham County Council’s Visual Arts Team.
The company was established in 2002 and over that last 5 years we have supported 700 creative practitioners with to establish and grow creative enterprises.
