Creative Pipeline


Culture Perth and Kinross is a vibrant charitable trust whose work includes supporting and promoting the Creative Industries sector in the area. As a key partner in the Ideas Centre we are offering an exciting opportunity for young people to join the Creative Pipeline programme, and an environment that nurtures creativity, enterprise and innovation.

This free support programme will enable you to explore the Creative Industries sector through a series of tailored workshops, studio visits, business advice and mentoring. It will facilitate the early stages of researching and establishing a creative business idea, with a view to supporting those involved in the programme into self-employment.

Acceptance on the programme will include free workspace and access to equipment in the Maker_Space at A K Bell Library in Perth. You will also be offered opportunities to learn first hand from professional already working in the Creative Industries plus receive start-up business support, with potential to progress on to the Incubation and Accelerator programmes within the Ideas Centre (see individual webpages for further details of these programmes).
The Creative Pipeline Programme is open to all aged 16+ who are not currently be in education, employment or training.

So if you want to explore a career in the Creative Industries with the possibility of ultimately creating your own creative business doing what you love, get in touch with us at
