AltPitch: the Platform

What is the Platform?

The Platform is a collaborative partnership between digital and creative businesses and the arts practitioners.

The Platform programme aims to stimulate creativity within the business community, the wider involvement of the workforce in creative activities, the connection between the business and artistic objectives and the ability of the businesses to see their activity in a wider cultural and social perspective.

AltPitch acts as a mediator between creative and business communities, creating a productive environment for the ideas and initiatives to be presented and tested, and for the collaborations to be formed.

Whether you are an artist, entrepreneur or represent a creative business, you will take back from the Platform not only the fresh ideas and approaches to your work but also a number of valuable contacts.
