In the beginning...
This site has be put together after @pcmcreative picked up a hashtag #creativequarter in her Twitter stream on 28th September 2012. In order to gather the information and share it with her network the WORD ON THE STREET document was started.
On 1st December 2012 Rikki Marr announces his official appointment as the first #CreativeQuarter ambassador.
On 6th December 2012 a group of 16 independent creatives met together to ask "What is going on?" and to ask "What comes next?". "How can we get involved?" was raised and "What barriers are there to business currently in the area?" alone with questioning "How much money is there?" and a call for transparency in the process of allocating and spending the funds.
As a result of that meet up this site was created.
On 16th December 2012 Rikki held the first open meeting as CreativeQuarter ambassador welcoming 45 curious 'quantifiers".
On 1 February 2013 LaceMarket Open Link was formed, (holding it's first meeting @thelacehouse) to act as a reception forum to the projects and initiatives emerging within Nottingham's LaceMarket to provide awareness and information to residents businesses.
