The Handcrafted Gallery – Creative Industry support initiative 

Ards Business Centre are launching a new Creative Industry support initiative. This will be in the form of a shared retail space in The Precinct in South Street, Newtownards. We are hoping to tailor this initiative to offer bespoke support to  individuals who are starting or running a business in the creative industry sector in Northern Ireland.

Applications to stock will reopen later in the year.
