Network for Creative Enterprise Final Report

The Network for Creative Enterprise (NfCE) was established in October 2017 to help freelancers, artists, creative practitioners, start-up microbusinesses, and small to medium enterprises (SMEs) in the West of England Local Enterprise Partnership make a sustainable living from their creative ideas. The programme was led by Watershed and UWE Bristol and awarded £1m by Arts Council England and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) to achieve this ambition.

This report describes what we did, how we did it, and what we found out.
