Creative Kernow

Creative Kernow

Creative Kernow, based at Krowji, is the umbrella organisation for the following nine projects. Together we support the production, promotion and distribution of work by creative practitioners in Cornwall because we believe in creativity’s transformative power and want more people to benefit from it.

July 2021 | Changes to new client registration

Title Decoration
July 2021 marks a huge milestone for Cultivator; we are now moving into the last year of the European and Arts Council funding that has enabled us to deliver our programme of creative business and skills support to creative sector businesses across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly since 2016.

As we begin this final phase, we have taken the decision to close our doors to new clients. This means that from 16th July, you will no longer be able to register to receive support from Cultivator. The reason for this is twofold:

  • We want to ensure that all of our clients get a full experience of what we offer. A lot of the work we do with creative businesses can take around a year to be fully realised, so accepting new clients now would not allow us sufficient time to work with them.
  • Our resources and staff capacity are already committed by the huge number of businesses we are currently working with. We want our service to these clients to be as impactful as it can be.

What does this mean if I am already a client?

Not too much will change. Our business advisors will continue to offer support sessions, our calendar of events will continue apace, and we will keep you informed of funding rounds and other activity that we have scheduled for the next year. In the second half of 2022, we may also contact you to help us evaluate your journey with Cultivator.

What does this mean if I am in the process of registering as a client?

If you are unsure about the status of your registration, please contact our admin team at [email protected] as soon as possible.

Will you open the doors again in the future?

This is dependent on whether we are able to secure additional funding for Cultivator to continue. We are unable to comment further at the moment.
