4CNW Creative Directory launch

We're delighted to announce that the 4CNW Creative Directory will be launched by Ireland’s Minister for Small Business, John Perry TD, at 2pm on Monday 17th June in Sligo, Ireland. 

The 4CNW Creative Directory is a dynamic, interactive tool for web and mobile. A unique European service innovation, the Directory will increase creative industries access to the wider business environment and the European marketplace, by profiling 180 creative businesses from across Ireland, Northern Ireland and Scotland. The creative businesses listed on the directory will be filterable by location, name and and type of service allowing creatives to search for fellow creative businesses in their local area to form partnerships or share knowledge, while also allowing them to be found by local businesses who are searching for a particular creative service, such as photography, film making, graphic design, architecture or sculpture to name but a few. 

Hosted by Conall Ó Moráin (Today FM, Sunday Business Show) the event will include a keynote address from Rasmus Wiinstedt Tscherning; Managing Director, Centre for Cultural and Experience Economy, Denmark and Chair of the EC European Creative Industries Alliance (ECIA) and an interview with one of Ireland’s best known Fashion Designers; Helen McAlinden with Joe Queenan from Foxford Wollen Mills to discuss the importance of creativity and innovation in business growth.

This is a free event. If you would like to attend on the day please email Ceolin Devaney to secure your place and receive a full schedule for the event.
