is the Creative-Freelance website?
Creative-Freelance website provides a showcase for the work of Freelance,
an association of creative freelance professionals based in Ipswich
in the UK. Among
its members are freelance professional illustrators, artists, writers,
graphic designers, and craftspeople.
are Freelance's aims?
To offer mutual support, advice, help and information, to promote
the members' work and to provide valuable social contact for people
who usually work in isolation. Freelance is a self-help organisation,
without any paid staff.
does Freelance do?
The central activity of Freelance consists of monthly meetings on
the last Thursday of each month in Ipswich, at 8 pm. At some meetings
we have speakers from the creative or publishing business. At other
meetings, members talk about their work and bring samples. Occasionally,
we go on visits to such places as galleries, museums, publishers,
art material suppliers, and so on. We've shared problems, given
moral support, swapped tips, made contacts and just generally enjoyed
ourselves at meetings and social gatherings.
are the benefits of membership?
Most members participate regularly in our activities. They comment
that they appreciate being able to discuss things like where the
new opportunities are, how best to present yourself to potential
clients, how to survive being a freelance, how to publicise your
work, with people who understand. Bimonthly newsletters keep everyone
in touch with Freelance.
Anyone who works as a creative freelance in Suffolk, England, either
part- or full-time; we also support students and those who are trying
to start out in freelance work. Most of our members live and work
in the Ipswich area, but we welcome anyone from adjoining counties
who is able to attend monthly meetings.
should I contact if I'm interested in someone's work?
If you are interested in someone's work you should contact the artist
direct, or via the Creative
Freelance webmaster giving the artist's name, your name and
contact info, and some general details about your inquiry.
