With bases across the UK, CreativeMornings is a great organisation to follow if you’re into widening your mind, meeting new people and engaging in the creative industry.

Aquent Gynasium

You may view Meetup as a social platform, rather than one rooted in business, or the creative industry, however, this is where you might be going wrong! Out of thousands of groups on Meetup, there are many centered around creativity, working in the creative industry, or how to get your creative career off the ground. With millions of members, you don’t know who you could meet!
