Creative Co-operatives has been developed by Co-operatives UK to raise the profile of co-operation in the creative industries. Many of our members – themselves co-operatives – operate in the creative industries and their stories of why co-operation has worked for them demonstrate its resonance.
Creative Co-operatives makes the case for why co-operating, collaborating and co-working can all benefit you as a creative worker – to build a more stable business, to find new ways of practicing your art, and to find a better balance between life and work. Whether you're a self-employed creative professional, or a new graduate from a creative industries course, we have practical suggestions as to why collaboration and co-operation could be relevant to you.
You'll meet people who work in creative industry co-operatives, hear from industry figures who lay out why co-operation has an important role to play in the creative industries, and find practical information on the benefits of co-operatives and how to work co-operatively.
And if you need to know more, you can always get in touch here.
Creative Co-operatives has been made possible through Co-operatives UK's Strategic Partner funding from the Office for Civil Society.
