About Creative Nelson
What it is:
Creative Nelson is a FREE quarterly eMagazine
FOR Creatives in Nelson, ABOUT Creatives in Nelson.
Each issue will showcase the region's talent from students to commercial creatives, from poetry to music. Nelson is a hub of creativity and we often fall short in knowing what other creatives are up to in the region and their stories. Creative Nelson is a way to share the stories of our locals and offer tips and advice in creative industries. This is a way to unite our talented region in a simple, effective and informative way.
How it came about:
As a creative myself (Amanda Sears), with a strong interest in the Nelson community, I wanted to create something that displayed the amazing range of talent of those that work and live here. From studying at NMIT and being a part of local art groups and committees, I have seen the quality of work firsthand and know the amount of talented people who's work goes unnoticed locally. We are too busy to commit to following everyone online and attending all art shows and exhibitions that there needed to be an easier way to keep in touch with the rest of the creative community...I love Nelson and have a strong background in layout design and print so what better way to use my skills, than to create a FREE eMagazine for everyone!
And so it began...
