Tipping Point powered by Generator #creativenews @GeneratorNE


We're back! Bringing you hot tips, national news and the latest events plus occasional laments from our very modest (and really handsome) talent development team. Continuing on from the last few mailers, we've got our brand new Tipper of the week, a quick Q&A, some rather exciting funding news and a whopping bit of artist development news from us...

TDP's if you're reading this, we would LOVE to hear from you - send us your news, views, events, campaigns, initiatives, (basically, anything that would be awesome for budding artists). Thanks in advance, you legends.
