The date for the first Creativity Connected Event is 18 + 19 July 2020. The prospect of promoting and putting this show together is exciting. Of course, the event will be challenging. However, this aspect is beneficial to the project. Challenges keep us on our toes. And yes! There are significant investments involved in making this show work, and we have a feeling there is every reason to put this show on the events calendar.

We are about to put the expertise learned over the last six years of the test. I know we will rise to the moment. We can evidence our ability to organise unique and captivating shows. Although, the difference with the ‘Creativity Connected Show’ is we are aiming for this show to become a national event.

No organiser has attempted to bring together every facet of the creative arts under one roof. My thinking is, artists will thrive in this environment. Exchange of ideas, thoughts and methods will unify them as artistic, creative people. The event is concentric: in the inner-circle are the community of exhibitors surrounded by the circle of visitors. The visitor may be someone who wishes to learn about techniques, and she may want to buy community exhibitors artwork, another may attend to buy products.

The power of art is beyond the force of commercial influence. Think about this statement with care. Nothing is made without thought, ideas, writing, drawing, designing, producing, exasperation, celebration, disappointments and celebrations.

For Examples:

→Photographs – Videos – Music production combines to make documentary or family archive.

→Writers and photographers produce commercial articles or personal blogs, Vlogs, Vimeo or Youtube productions. Photographers and Videographers can meet and enjoy workshops.

→Bloggers can get into the Wordpress vibe and see what is available in training, plug-ins and templates.

→Designers, painters, pencil sketchers, silk-screen printers will demonstrate the skills of their art. And sell their creations.

→Zine producers and self-publishers can exhibit and sell their work.

→Amazing printmakers have a platform to make sales. Meet with agents and gallery owners.

→Clothes designer can display and sell their work.

→If you are a singer on the open stage, who knows who will hear your work?

→Editors, publishers can look for new talent, the show is a holistic, artistic playground.

→The idea of a Mentor’s corner: offers opportunities to all who are one2one trainers or those who are looking to meet a mentor.

→And of course, there will be writer and self-publishing workshops.

“every stand is a retail stand – there are no limitations to how you use your space”

These are not the only aspects of the show which will come together. There are opportunities for producers of artist materials and production equipment. Maybe you are a used equipment dealer who wishes to connect to new customers? If you have artistic or productions sales prospects, there is a place for you at ‘Connectivity Connected’.

We are convinced ‘Creativity Connected’ will receive incredible self-promotion. I am certain creative people understand the need to connect this event is the ultimate creative networking opportunity. It seems to me many people will attend to expand their connections. For example, art dealers may visit and scout for new talent.

In many interactions, we are asked: ‘How and why have you created this show?’ and we learn from the answer. Ask why The LizianEvents Organisation has chosen to put this show together? And the answer is: ‘The show is a first and a great idea. Everyone asked about the concept: loves the idea. After-all the creative mind can see the possibilities, this show has to offer’.

And the first show will be subsided to encourage exhibitors: The stand fees are £100:00 for a single table: £190:00 for two tables and £270:00 for triple tables for the whole weekend! What better opportunity to connect with Visitors and fellow creative people? If you retail artwork, photographs, ceramics, art supplies, photographic supplies, silk-screen printing equipment, etc., the options are endless. With talk schedules and demonstration areas, exhibitors should quickly recover their costs.

The Lady Eastwood Centre is the perfect venue: Large and spacious and unlimited parking. Watch this space for more details…

Connectivity Connected Ethos:

The directors of Connectivity Connected Ltd establish their ethos through six years of trading in other businesses. Ian Timothy and Liz Clark are dedicated to the longterm development of their events. The integrity of our work is transparent and open for all to see. We do not understand modern business as materially driven. Yes! There is a need to pay bills in full and ahead of time. However, our reward is within the success of seeing those who work with us succeed. The emotional and intellectual award of this ethos is difficult to explain, and for most people, our ethic is almost impossible to accept.

Our ethos is simple to explain: Profits are returned into the infrastructure of the next show. We do not take excessive wages; indeed, for the first years of trading, we received nothing from the businesses. We see the future of events as being Community Driven. This means the dominant principle is for exhibitors and Community members to prosper and thrive.

The Connectivity Connected Event is seen as a way of providing artists with an opportunity to exhibit their work without restriction. To this end, there is no separation between stand fees. Every stand can be used as a micro exhibition, retail and promotional area.

Artists are always struggling for funds! Young artists need materials, books, help with travel and sometimes expenses. We cannot help everyone: however, we can make a small contribution. A percentage of profit made at each show will be returned into the next shows award fund. Prizes given as small bursaries for students seems to be the way to go: as will prizes for the best-judged artwork exhibited during the event. It is hoped sponsors will also help with artistic centred awards for exhibitors. 

The venue has ample parking, excellent facilities and easy access. The Lady Eastwood Centre is a magnificent building for this first event. Already interest is growing, and bookings are being taken for stand space.
