There’s nothing like a bank holiday weekend for proving how quickly time goes. So here are some opportunities for which now (or PDQ) is the best time to act.

Creative industries – tell the council what you think 

As you might have guessed by now, here at CreativeNottingham we are serious advocates of Nottingham’s creative industries. There’s a lot of great stuff going on in Nottingham. Some of which gets celebrated and some of which deserves much more of a mention. So we’re very pleased to see that Nottingham City Council, Nottingham Trent University and others have identified the creative industries as one of five key sectors that can help grow the local economy. Now they want to hear from the community. Tell them what you think by taking part in their survey here.

Share your skills at Rufford Craft Centre

Rufford Craft centre is now accepting applications from professional artists/makers who offer workshops to the public. Apply by Monday 20 September 2010 to be considered for their February to June 2011 Programme. They’re particularly interested to hear from you if you have something new or different to offer.

Work at the Birds Eye View Film Festival

Here’s your chance to work at the Birds Eye View Film Festival which celebrates and supports international women filmmakers. The organisation is currently recruiting for its 2011 festival. They need a Marketing Manager (Social Media, Emarketing and Partnerships) and a Marketing Manager (Print and Distribution). The application deadline for both roles is 13 September so if you’re interested apply here now.
