Doncaster has a rich history of creativity and innovation and starts the new decade with some exciting developments.
With 2021 witnessing the opening of both the new Danum Gallery, Library and Museum and a new cinema complex within the Civic and Cultural Quarter, to be joined shortly by a further independent studio and gallery showcasing the works of local artists, Doncaster's Creative Cultural and Digital sector is growing.
360 Degrees Media are progressing their plans to bring TV and Film production facilities to the town and have already launched their training arm Lightforge Academy.
Local businesses and business centre are also working to raise the creative temperature with co-working Project at Copley Road, Helm, Queens Road Design Centre, C-View and Workhere providing attractive supportive work environments for creatives with Doncopolitan Magazine providing a strong narrative of the growing local scene.
2020 will have changed the manner in which business centres and co-working spaces operate but blended working/learning partners being adopted together with a surge in business start-ups is anticipated to bring renewed interest.
Business Doncaster is eager to ensure that we engage with as many local creative, cultural and digital companies in order to keep everyone informed about local opportunities and so that the sector can better collaborate and raise its profile regionally, nationally and beyond.
Creative Doncaster has been established recently providing a handy what’s on guide, news, resource package, list of spaces/venues and creative directory. If you are a local creative business, why not join Creative Doncaster and complete the online template?
