In this video we again talk to David Bain of From Drawn in Bristol about what creatives really need next in Bristol to be able to thrive.
This is the fifth and final video in our series investigating the creative industry landscape in Bristol. These are all very relevant to creatives in the South West. It can also offer useful insights to any non-london based individuals and organisations as the insights and lessons are transferable to similar creative ecosystems across the UK.
The next challenge for Bristol’s strong creative community is to become more business-minded. David thinks that creatives such as illustrators and makers must:
- be supported by a structured tailored programme,
- become better at marketing and financial management,
- have a long-term plan.
