Creative Tunbridge Wells launches to ‘ignite growth and innovation’

Creative Tunbridge Wells (CTW), a Cultural Compact funded by Arts Council England, has officially launched its website and social media platforms.

Having already been active for several months, CTW is dedicated to serving the vibrant community of artists, entrepreneurs and creative professionals in Tunbridge Wells.

Dawn Badland, chair of the CTW Steering Group, said: “By identifying shared opportunities and goals across both the creative and wider local sectors, we hope CTW can help to form meaningful and sustainable partnerships, which will have positive social and economic impacts in the borough. CTW is a collaboration, and we are delighted to be gaining momentum together.”

Creative Tunbridge Wells aims to provide comprehensive support, collaborative opportunities and advocacy for strategic growth and success of the local creative sector.

By partnering with existing creative businesses, community groups, freelancers and cultural organisations, CTW spearheads a range of tailored projects and resources. These include networking events, skills development workshops, assistance in accessing funding and grants, and fostering strategic partnerships.

CTW’s goal is to empower individuals and businesses within the creative industry, enabling them to thrive and grow.

Alex Green, CEO of RTW Together, said: “RTW Together is delighted to be supporting and helping fund CTW, which we believe has a great opportunity to galvanise the Creative and Cultural employment sectors, thereby supporting employment and growth as well as helping to sustain the events activity within the town, which benefits all”.

William Benson, CEO of TWBC, added: “Tunbridge Wells Council is thrilled with the creation of CTW. Tunbridge Wells is a hugely entrepreneurial place and regularly tops the charts for creative hotspots.

“CTW will play a vital role in taking this to the next level – maximising our potential and ensuring even more creativity and connectivity within the sector.”
