Prosper North Announces Edition Two

At the Prosper North business support we have some brilliant news to share with the network.

The new Edition of Prosper North has now begun with 30 organisations taking part. We have theatres, music venues, art centres, literature festivals, printing expertise, traditional building crafts, and digital art. They reach from the top of the country at Hadrian’s Wall in Northumberland all the way down to the Peak District in South Yorkshire, across the country from the Wirral to Grimsby on the east coast. All the organisations have been matched with an expert business advisor who will be working one to one with themhelping them to become sustainable and resilient businesses. We are really excited to be working with such an interesting and varied group of organisations and look forward to getting to share their innovative cultural work.
