    Creative Edinburgh is bringing you more opportunities to network with wee ones in tow! 

    Join us at our quarterly Creatives with Kids event, a chance to grab a cuppa, have a chat and meet fellow creatives balancing work with parenthood. We'll be welcoming 2020 with a return to the wonderful Tribe Porty on Tuesday 28 January. 

    Creatives with Kids is an opportunity for creative folk to come together, share ideas and make connections. Whether you’re looking for a collaborator, are keen to learn and share skills, or want to discuss the highs and lows of sharing your creative life with kids, come along!

    This event is for anyone who works in the creative industries - from makers and artists to marketing and agency folk. Babies and children are welcome, but even if the kids are at school, come along yourself for some grown up creative company.

    Tribe Porty is a community co-working and creative events space based in Portobello. Tribe is big on building community and believes that a nurturing environment which sparks creativity and collaboration is good for business, individuals and communities. To learn more about their co-working and events space, events programme and range of workshops and courses, explore their website, or chat to the team on the day.

    There’ll be tea, coffee, juice and a few snacks. Please bring along a keep-cup if you have one! 

    Please note capacity is limited and this is a popular event. If you can no longer make it, please tell us so we can release your ticket - just email info@creative-edinburgh.com.

    Any other questions? Just drop the Creative Edinburgh team an email at info@creative-edinburgh.com.

    We hope to see you there!

    Back in June, we opened the Creative with Kids survey, keen to gain data on the experience of creatives raising kids is like. We had a huge number of responses and collated the results. Read the report and share round fellow creatives at this link.

    Creative Edinburgh helps creative individuals and businesses thrive, through events, career support and advocacy. We are supported by Creative Scotland. And an extra special thank you to our hosts at Tribe Porty!

    CodeBase Edinburgh Meetup 1: Ecosystems

    When: Tuesday 28th January 2020 // 5.45 - 8.30pm

    Where: CodeBase, 37a Castle Terrace, Edinburgh EH1 2EL

    About the event...

    "We're going to be running a series of Meetups in 2020 that are all about bringing together the tech community and learning best practice in building startups.

    Our first meetup will be on the 28th of January, and the topic will be startup ecosystems. What makes a startup ecosystem? Entrepreneurs, investors, academia, and government, all play their part - but can you just combine all these things in a city with decent infrastructure and expect a startup scene to thrive? How can entrepreneurs leverage an ecosystem to give their company the best chance of success? And should we all be thinking more widely about what an "ecosystem" actually is?

    Who better to talk about such things than Natalie Novick from tech.eu who spends her life (not to mention a PhD) investigating what makes ecosystems around the world tick. This talk will be followed by a panel chaired by Natalie featuring:

    Briana Pegado, Director of Creative Edinburgh. Briana has been a key player in building the Edinburgh creative and tech ecosystem

    Matt Farrugia, Founder of Bemo. Matt is a Founder and Investor in several Edinburgh tech businesses. His podcast Startupification recently focused on the topic of ecosystems

    Abhishek Lahoti, Business Development & Partnerships at Dropbox. Abhishek will be giving us the scaleup view of how companies that grow rapidly from startup to small enterprise create and maintain a collaborative and efficient ecosystem"

    From ScreenSkills... 

    "Come to our Mentoring Roadshow to learn about the ScreenSkills Mentoring Network and how getting involved – as a mentor or a mentee – could benefit your career. We’re inviting people from across film, TV, games, animation and VFX to attend, hear about the scheme, network with key players from the industry and experience a mentoring taster session.

    This event is open to all career levels and is being held at the City Chambers, Edinburgh, EH1 1YJ. You don’t need to be an expert to become a mentor and whether you’re new to the industry, returning after a break (for example, as a parent or carer) or an experienced professional, you could still benefit from finding a mentor to share experience and knowledge with.

    • Benefits of mentoring for both parties include:
    • Seeing things from another’s perspective
    • Increasing your network
    • Giving and receiving feedback
    • Developing communication skills
    • Learn from the ideas and experiences of someone who is different from you
    • Using your creativity

    ScreenSkills has established the ScreenSkills Mentoring Network supported by the BFI with funds from the National Lottery under the BFI’s Future Film Skills Strategy."
