Sheffield Creative Guild

Launched in 2016 to enhance the visibility, resilience and sustainability of the region’s creative communities, Sheffield Creative Guild is a membership cooperative for any individual, business or organisation working in the creative sector.

We aim to:

  • connect creatives and improve networking and collaboration
  • provide support and advice to creatives in the region
  • promote and shout about our members and their work
  • represent and advocate for our members and on behalf of the sector
  • provide routes to market

We have a partnership with the Art and Design department of Sheffield Hallam University, meaning that certain of that course's year groups are given membership to the Guild as part of their degree.

We provide talks by professionals working in the arts to inform these students on how they might best approach a career as a freelancer or as part of a creative organisation, and arrange tours around local businesses of interest to the students.
