Launched in 2016 to enhance the visibility, resilience and sustainability of the region’s creative communities, Sheffield Creative Guild is a membership cooperative for any individual, business or organisation working in the creative sector.
Two years on and we now have over 550 members from the region and beyond who benefit from promotion to grow their audience, support to learn new skills and events to meet new collaborators.
We hold regular events from networking and socials to showcases and workshops and partner with other organisations across the city to bring our members a supportive, accessible and fun annual events programme.
Our timebank platform enables members to share knowledge and skills, reinterpreting traditional economic perceptions of value. So far over 300 hours of skills have been traded which has enabled members to collaborate and grow new projects, learn new skills and generally just get stuff done. We have also provided opportunities for members to access commissions, share and sell their work.
We are creatives of all persuasions and positions, actively talking, working, sharing and seeking other creative people, talents, events and opportunities.
