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.

Rose Goodship

Performing Arts Creative Business Advisor

Growing up in Cornwall, I’ve been involved in the local performance community for many years. My love of theatre and dance, paired with a creative entrepreneurship background, has led to an obsession with creating a sustainable and flourishing performance sector. In Cornwall, we make some of the brightest and most innovative performance anywhere in the world and my drive is making sure the sector receives the support and recognition that it so richly deserves.

I’m also incredibly proud of the diversity and quality of Cornish music and have worked with organisations like RouteNote and CMU to provide musicians with a platform to understand the inner workings of the music industry. In the last couple of years, I’ve opened up opportunities for the growing regional grassroots scene, offering some of our most exciting up-and-coming artists the chance to wow crowds at showcases with international reach. I’ve represented Cornish music at various industry events and use this platform to raise awareness of some of the issues musicians face when cutting their cloth in the modern industry. I’m also on the Cornwall Music Network team and am passionate about weaving connections in the sector, helping artists, venues and promoters to help each other.
