You deserve a more sustainable future – one where your passion for creativity isn’t suffocated by business processes and plans. Your creatively-rooted business should thrive and grow, and so should you alongside it.

Spark Grimsby is a support programme, designed to ignite your passion for creating a sustainable business – whether you’re just a concept stage or already have a flourishing business and are looking to grow.


Spark Grimsby is delivered by our partner CDI Alliance in a consortium, with local expertise and resource provided by Sector Support North East LincolnshireEvent Show Support CICDocks Academy and as part of the Grimsby Creates Programme which is funded by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and administered by Arts Council England as part of the Cultural Development Fund (CDF).


We’re a collective of business advisers and practitioners with a wealth of experience across the creative industries, from Film and TV, software and digital agencies, through to music, festivals and live events.


Our support is delivered through a mixture of one-to-one advice tailored to your specific issues through to a range of interactive masterclasses and creative sector events that will help you make more connections, discover new opportunities and access additional support programmes.

Monthly events.

There’ll be events monthly that you can attend – virtually at first – and we’re hoping to create a legacy to keep the creative fires burning in Grimsby.
