Dedicated support for the creative arts sector in the Scottish Borders

CABN - Creative Arts Business Network, supports the professional creative sector in the Scottish Borders, with a focus on creative micro-businesses across all artforms. We also engage with, and provide support to sectoral organisations and community groups, and work with a range of partners to develop further opportunities.

CABN supports primarily through its core function as a Network – providing information relevant to the creative sector through the CABN website, weekly e-bulletin and Social Media. If you would like to be added to the e-mail network list to receive our weekly bulletin, or have your event/opportunity shared through our bulletin, please contact Felicity Bristow.
