Information on Event

In celebration of Creativity Month, a gathering of creative minds will be taking place on Wednesday 22 March at Bleary Business and Community Centre. The event will encourage new collaborations and stimulate novel ways of thinking to ultimately help local businesses grow and become more profitable.

Hosted by Belfast-based co-working community WabiSabi, this joint event is the second all-day business co-working event to be held in the Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council facility and will run from 9.30am to 4.30pm.

The event is about creatives coming together to share their business experience and kick start a platform for sharing ideas. Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council is vibrant, globally focused and a strong entrepreneurial region and Council’s number one priority is growing the economy. This new way of working will help attendees realise the potential for growing their business and maximising their income in ways they hadn’t discovered before. It’s about sparking new ideas and using the resources already existing within the sector to support these ideas and build on them.

Morning Session: Think You’re Not Creative? Think Again!
Yvonne Smyth, Flourish

We tend to believe that we’re either innately creative or not, but this is not, in fact, true. Anyone can become more creative and Yvonne will present some frameworks which can be used to spark that creativity.

Yvonne Smyth is a Business Mentor and a Mindset and Success Coach whose passion is helping people to create Flourishing Businesses and Flourishing Lives. Her Mantra is “If you do what you always did, you’ll get what you always got”.

Afternoon Session: Turning a Creative Passion Into a Creative Business
Marianne Kennerley, B00M! Studios 

Creative people often find it difficult to put a value on their skill, product or time. It’s OK to charge and get paid for your expertise! Marianne will examine some working models and methods for creative enterprises.

Marianne Kennerley is a multi-disciplinary artist and designer, based in Bangor, Northern Ireland. She is the co-founder and Studio Co-Ordinator of Boom! Studios, Bangor.
