site overview

This site provides an online directory of creative and digital businesses and services specifically in the Borough of Wigan. The site is intended to help organisations source local creative services – artists, designers, craftsmen, developers, photographers, musicians, performers et al - and for creatives looking to collaborate with other creatives.

The site is part of the Creative Wigan initiative which aims to support the creative and digital sector. Over 90% of the businesses within the creative sector are individuals who don’t always actively promote their services, as they’re generally very busy doing what they enjoy and do best - painting, sculpting, designing, making, developing, filming, drawing, acting, singing, dancing, writing, composing - rather than selling. However, there is a wealth of talent in Wigan and this site is designed to provide access to it.

If you’re looking to commission any of these skills, or are another creative wanting to partner, collaborate or sub-contract on a project, simply click on the category you’re interested in to see a list of providers with skills in that area; and then click on the service provider to see a full profile of that business or individual and their contact details.

Alternatively, if you have a project, tender or requirement that you’d like to gain enquiries or proposals for, please send the details to email@creativewigan.com and we will post the information on the site as an opportunity.
