Project Spotlight: Creating a Sustainable Future for Newcastle Creatives!
PNE are working towards a sustainable future for creatives in Newcastle. Through projects like The Sustainable Creative and Create and Collaborate, we aim to build a more vibrant and eco-friendly creative community.
Create and Collaborate is an exciting new project that embraces creativity and challenges North East creatives to come together and foster innovation through collaboration.
The workspace has been designed from the ground up to encourage success and growth. Equipped with a 3D printer, a photo lightbox, and iMacs, this space is perfect for both experienced and new creative entrepreneurs.
