Glasgow Connected Arts Network provides a bespoke professional development training, networking and mentoring programme geared specifically for those working in the Creative Industries in Scotland. There are thematic networking events called CreativeConnect, monthly training workshops and 1-to-1 support sessions on offer.

We host friendly and informative networking for Glasgow creatives and freelancers.

Our networking sessions are open to both Glasgow Connected Arts Network members and non-members and are always FREE to attend. It is friendly, informal and a great opportunity to connect with fellow artists, freelancers and organisations. Each month we usually have a guest speaker or a particular topic or theme.

We provide bespoke training sessions for Creatives.

Our bespoke professional development training workshops happen regularly throughout the year. They are specialist led and geared specifically for those working in the creative industries in Scotland.
