Creative Fuse North East invites you to CAKE 20: Maker CAKE 

Creative Fuse North East’s 20th CAKE event will celebrate the North East's maker communities, exploring the intersections between craft and innovation. We will showcase the work of artists and crafters from across the region in our interactions gallery, as well as considering maker spaces and maker movements in the North East and beyond. Our speakers will discuss makers who are exploring the edges of their practice, using new materials and technologies and seeking out unique collaborations across industry, science and craft.

At Maker CAKE, we are delighted to be partnering with Google Digital Garage - a digital skills training platform to assist you in growing your business, career and confidence online. In addition to our usual CAKE programme, the event will feature a one-hour masterclass on Social Media Strategy, with expert advice on how to harness the power of social media for business to reach new audiences and turn them into valuable customers.
