Event Details

Join the Isle of Wight Creative Network for a very special free networking event and panel discussion as we explore events and festivals, sales and marketing skills for visual artists and how to build a sustainable career in the creative sector.


Introducing the event will be Cllr Julie Jones-Evans, the Isle of Wight Council’s Cabinet Member for Levelling Up, Regeneration, Business Development and Tourism. The panel will include:


Jack Whitewood – Co-Director of Ventnor Fringe, discusses building an arts ecology in an area which started off with (seemingly) nothing – as well as building audiences.

Jo Hummel – an established Visual Artist based on the IW will share some of her secrets to success, demystify the process, and discuss risk and mindset, and how to export your work and be ‘seen’.

Alys Scott Hawkins – Arts Advisor and Visual Artist, has been one of the IW Creative Network mentors and now represents a-n’s Artist Council. She will talk about building a sustainable creative career, arts funding and partnership building.


This event is part of the Solent LEP’s Creative Growth Event series. Find out more here
