Welcome to the  CING Network!

 

The Creative Industries Networking Group (CING) was formed in 2008 with a mission to support and facilitate the success of its creative industries members. We do this by engaging and representing the sector; providing development, training and promotion; and by securing commercial opportunities.

The core of CING is its monthly networking events, held on the first Monday of every month. This is a chance to meet peers from across the sector, and to listen to inspirational speakers from the creative and business communities, as well as to find out about complementary support and development services that are available.

In addition, CING hosts business skills workshops, designed specifically for creative sector freelancers and business owners looking for advice and tools to address specific issues.

Working with our partners, CING also host events aimed at showcasing and promoting the talent within the creative sector and seeks to secure commercial contracts for members to ensure their long term success.

The majority of our members are therefore those working in creative fields such as design, photography, film, animation, music, fashion, art, crafts, digital, advertising, marketing, architecture, and television.

Our network also comprises a range of support organisations, business development, professional services, and academics, who have an interest in supporting and developing the creative industries. 

We also welcome students, graduates, those thinking about setting up their own creative business, and also anyone who is looking to commission or employ creative practitioners.

Becoming a member is completely free and can be done via  www.c-i-n-g.org, where you can see a list of our upcoming events and browse our members profiles and comments.
