What is N17 Creative Callings?


For those of you interested in the N17 Creative Callings business support programme that we are currently running here is an explanation of what the initiative is all about:

N17 Creative Callings is a new programme of support for all creatives that live in the Tottenham area. It’s a part of the Creative Enterprise Zone initiative that has been set up by the Mayor of London; other boroughs include Croydon, Hounslow, Brixton, Lewisham, Hackney Wick and Fish Island.

Fashion-Enter and Collage Arts is working as one to deliver hand-holding mentoring support that aims to make established existing companies that are based in the Tottenham CEZ area grow and prosper.  Each company that joins the two-year scheme will need different support, which can range from targeted qualifications and technical skills to the creation of marketing and selling plans. All areas of the business will be reviewed with the intention of making the company, and it’s employees, stronger and more profitable. We aim to add value for each company!

Spaces are limited and they are on a first come first served basis. Each company has to provide evidence of authenticity and a business analysis is conducted too. Part of the programme includes the highly popular N17 Creative Callings Employer Engagement seminars that take place each month.

Quotes from individuals on the programme:

Jenny Holloway with Zara Afflick

I’ve been working in the industry for 21-years and I’m proud of my launch collection. It’s beautifully made and my market research shows the styles are on-trend. Now I need the mentoring and business support to push my brand to the next level. That’s why it’s great to be working with Fashion-Enter.” – Lauren Morrison founder of Mi-bambino.
