Derry Creatives Collective is the foundational company that supports the #DERRYcreatives community. It's here to facilitate the online community and to bring that community together in the real world, in order to connect, create and collaborate.
We also support, in small ways, the ventures that members of the #DERRYcreatives launch. If you are at that point in your journey let us know and let's make it happen together - we are always interested in new ideas with the potential to be independent ventures.
There is a regular calendar of activities that Derry Creatives Collective promotes. Join the community on Facebook, connect with our media partner, Derry Live List or bookmark our home page. We have a new social club in development so if you want to express an interest in becoming a member register at #DERRYcreatives
#DERRYcreatives is an open-source, collaborative group of people active in the creative fields based or connected to Derry, the place or the idea. We work together for the common good, launch new ventures and help put Derry - the creative city - on the map.
We provide a platform for you to network, exchange, collaborate, discuss, develop ideas, get support and learn from your peers. Join us and get involved

Ventures are new creative enterprises that you create yourself. They can start as initiatives under the umbrella of Derry Creatives Collective if that is helpful but they remain independent and led by you. Board members and the network within the #DERRYcreatives community are willing to give you time where they can. Sometimes we help you access other supports and connections and other times we support your promotion. We are incredibly proud to have supported the beginnings of these exciting and independent ventures.
