Creative Programme Live Event

Deadline 22nd January 2021

The Grimsby Creates Creative Programme has funds available to procure up to four major strands of creative activity which will take place in Grimsby over the next two years.

If you’re a creative individual or organisation that wishes to get involved in this great opportunity, there is an engagement session with the team to find out about the official procurement process, tender documents, how to use the e-tendering system and a brief overview of the upcoming tender. A formal tender process will follow shortly.

This will take the form of a virtual live event via Microsoft Teams on Friday 22nd January 11am to 12.30pm.

If you are interested in attending this event, please provide the following details to: Procurement@nelincs.gov.uk
