Creative, Digital & IT Open Studios 2013: Call for Participants

For 5 days this September, Brighton based Wired Sussex member companies are invited to open their doors as part of Creative, Digital & IT Open Studios week.

Whether you’re a small agency, just starting out or a large organisation that’s well established, we’d like you to take part!

What is CDIT Open Studios?

It’s a week-long event whereby Wired Sussex member companies can hold their own event under the umbrella of Wired Sussex CDIT Open Studios week as part of Brighton Digital Festival 2013.

CDIT Open Studios provides a unique opportunity for the public, students, recent graduates and peers to find out what goes on behind the scenes at some of Brighton’s most innovative creative, digital & IT companies.

It’s a fantastic opportunity to showcase what you can do through offering taster workshops or training sessions; look for potential employees using recruitment exercises; share knowledge and ideas within the creative, digital and technology community or even collaborate with other members and run a joint event!

When is it?

CDIT Open Studios 2013 will be taking place from Monday 23 September – Friday 27 September 2013 as part of Brighton Digital Festival 2013, a month long celebration of digital culture running throughout September.

The festival provides an exciting platform for a community led programme, with organisations from the arts and digital communities, alongside individuals who are passionate about digital culture, producing a festival which last year featured over 100 events, in over 45 venues and spaces, to a combined audience of over 25,000 people.

What do I get out of it?

  • Great way to make contact with others in the industry, sharing knowledge & ideas
  • A chance to meet potential recruits, graduates & students
  • Opportunity to collaborate with others
  • Make new friends in the creative, digital & tech sectors
