Our Master Class Day on Friday 15th November is now sold out.

The second in this series of Master Class Days takes place on Friday 15th November hosted once again by Osborne Clarke and supported by Creative Skillset.  Drawing on the experiences of some of Bristol's most successful creative businesses and the city's collaborative community, attendees will learn from their peers and take away actions to help their own creative ventures to flourish. Bristol is fast becoming well known nationally as having a great collaborative creative community and this is an opportunity for you to learn from each other, share ideas and network.
