During the course of my mentoring programme I have been introduced to some very exciting things which are going on in Nottingham and further afield.
One of these projects is called Creative Twinning, which is the brainchild of three Nottingham designers, Debbie Bryan, Jayne Childs and Hannah Lobley, who, in 2010, had the idea of building international creative exchanges with cultural sustainable ideas. They are currently on the look out for like-mided individuals to apply to be involved, creating new and exciting working collaborations and show-casing the best of East Midlands creativity, whilst forging links internationally too!! They have already sent delegates to Karlsruhe in Germany
Sounds great doesn't it? I've already applied as this sounds just like the kind of thing I really want to be involved with, but if you want to find out a bit more for yourself then click here
Creative Twinning have quoted 'We believe that when designers have the chance to exchange ideas, good things happen. So although the initial project had the idea of twinning designers from Nottingham’s twin cities (Ghent, Harare, Karlsruhe, Ljubljana and Minsk) Creative Twinning is not limited to working with cities officially linked to Nottingham. We have ‘Creative Twins’ in many places and are actively seeking new areas to work with, both in the UK and abroad.'
