Base Camp Exchange House, Exchange Square, Middlesbrough TS1 1DB

This event will consider the broader global context of women’s entrepreneurship and innovation, before looking specifically at recent research and recommendations around gender disparity in the creative and cultural sectors across Europe and the UK.

As a group, we will explore how we can apply these recommendations in practice to accelerate the growth of women-led creative businesses in our region. The outputs of our discussion will be recorded and shared with partners across the sector as part of the BoldlyGrow programme.

Lunch will be provided, with ample time for networking after the debate, and an overview of the BoldlyGrow programme will be given by Wendy Parvin of Creative Fuse.

Creative practitioners, commissioners, funders, leaders of heritage and cultural organisations, researchers, policymakers and sector supporters are warmly welcomed to attend, to enable a rich discussion and ensure mutually beneficial networking for all.
