About this event

This event will provide an informal (digital!) space to network with a range of different creative practitioners and professionals. We encourage you to BYOMP – Bring Your Own Mince Pie!

As part of this session, the Creative Fuse North East team will highlight what’s coming up in 2022 for the project, and the opportunities that businesses and practitioners can take part in.

We also have limited availability for those who would like to present in a PechaKucha style their hopes and goals for their business or practice in 2022. Please indicate when registering for this event that you would like to take part in this opportunity, one of the CFNE team will then be in touch.

PechaKucha is a storytelling format where a presenter shows 20 slides for 20 seconds of commentary per slide.


Whatever your professional background, this event is designed to support potential by inspiring new conversations and allowing introductions to take place that will enable collaboration. The event will take place on Zoom, the video conferencing platform. You don’t need to have an account but we recommend that you sign up for a free account and use the desktop app.

About CAKE

CAKE (Collaboration and Knowledge Exchange) is Creative Fuse North East’s monthly networking event, bringing together businesses, freelancers, academics, charities and creative practitioners from across the Creative, Digital and IT sectors and wider economy. Each themed CAKE event has expert speakers delivering short presentations that explore opportunities and innovation challenges. The events generate debate, explorative discussion and stimulate new innovative ideas by looking at each event’s theme from a variety of different perspectives – in keeping with the event name, attendees enjoy a slice of delicious cake while they network.*

“Not only was the event interesting and enjoyable but, for my company, it was an opportunity to make new connections. It has created new opportunities for Living Archive Limited, at a time in the company’s development where such opportunities are crucial for survival… The CAKE event was a chance to step back for a moment and focus on the bigger picture, and this has been very valuable to me.”
