Exploring Opportunities in the AV Industry Symposium

Check out one of our last events which took place on 3rd November in the Wicklow County Campus Rathnew.

What is the South Eastern Creative Corridor ?

The South Eastern Creative Corridor is an initiative of the Local Enterprise Offices funded under the Regional Action Plan for Jobs targeting supports to entrepreneurs and businesses who provide or could potentially provide products and services into the Creative Industry including the Film and wider Audio Visual industry.  

The Film/AV industry buy an extremely diverse range of products and services and one of the aims of this initiative is to help people, within the region, to set up new businesses or to expand their offering to this sector. It also aims to support existing suppliers to the Film/AV Industry to grow and develop and potentially trade internationally and create employment in the region.

The wider aim of the South Eastern Creative Corridor Initiative is to create a vibrant, viable, and growing creative Audio Visual industry cluster in the region connecting through the 6 counties of Waterford, Wicklow, Carlow, Kilkenny, Wexford and Tipperary.

Training workshops, networking events and mentoring meetings will take place in each of the five counties with larger regional events taking place in designated regional locations throughout the year. More dates and location details available soon or by request from info@creativecorridor.ie
