Cre­ativ­ity wanted

Macclesfield Express - - WILDLIFE -

A CRE­ATIVE ideas night is be­ing held to sup­port any­one in Macclesfield who thinks they may be har­bour­ing a great in­ven­tion or idea.

The Slice Fund are invit­ing ap­pli­cants to pitch their ideas to an au­di­ence who will then vote on who should be given fund­ing in their new ven­ture.

Vot­ers will be asked to pay £5 on the door, be­fore lis­ten­ing to ideas from artists, en­gi­neers, sci­en­tists, or any­one with a cre­ative de­sire.

One of the or­gan­is­ers of the night, Neil Puttick, was in­spired by a trip to Ber­lin when he took part in an ideas auc­tion.

He said: “My idea of an art­work was cho­sen in an ideas auc­tion in Ber­lin, and I thought about bring­ing it to Macclesfield.

“There are a lot of cre­ative peo­ple in Macclesfield and we need to bring that out, and ask them to come for­ward to take part in this.”

Money will be given for ven­tures such as gigs, art­works, ex­per­i­ments, film-mak­ing, or clothes de­signs.

One lucky win­ner will be cho­sen and walk away with the cash to help them with their cre­ative ideas or in­ven­tions.

But as well as vot­ing for a win­ner, the evening will also be a chance to ex­change ideas and meet new peo­ple.

Nick added: “In any event like this, it is a chance for peo­ple to get their busi­ness cards out there and swap num­bers and ideas.”

The Slice Cre­ative Fund­ing Night will be held on Thurs­day Fe­bru­ary 19 at 7pm at The Mon­o­cle Deli in Macclesfield.
