MyCreativeEdge: The Creative Showcase for Europe’s Northern Edge is a website which showcases the work of businesses and freelancers working in the creative industries sector in Mid-Sweden, North East Iceland, Northern Finland, South East of Northern Ireland and the West of Ireland.
Our aim is to increase international business for creatives working in the five regions and to increase connections and collaboration across Europe’s Northern Edge. Anyone working in the creative sector in these regions can create a free Profile on MyCreativeEdge to showcase their work.
Here, you’ll discover what’s unique about the creativity on the edge of Europe.
On MyCreativeEdge, you’ll find Profiles of creative work which is at the crossroads of arts, business and technology. The sectors covered are:
- Media & Technology
MyCreativeEdge.eu features Profiles of creative work drawn from five regions across Europe’s Northern Edge
