We’ve built with the CQ community in mind. Whether you live, work or play within the Creative Quarter boundaries or beyond, we’re inviting you to contribute to the growing wealth of local knowledge here on this site.

We’re inviting companies to share with us everything from their professional knowledge through to their favourite place to meet a client for a coffee. CQ residents are invited to share their food, drink and entertainment guides or to host their blog. And we’re inviting those who frequent the Creative Quarter to tell us why too.

There’s already a great deal of information on the Creative Quarter’s website, but we’ve been careful to split this into just a handful of sections. We’re openly accepting contributions to the sections below;

  1. What’s on
    If you’re hosting an EVENT that’s relevant to our audience then we’d be happy to promote it via our website and ever-growing social media audience. We’re looking for anything from networking, training and meet-up events through to outdoor fetes and markets. If you have an event that’s suitable, please email the event details to
  2. Business
    We want to promote the growth of businesses, old and new. We’ve outlined on our BUSINESS SUPPORT MAP just how much help is available to qualifying businesses, but we also want to showcase and profile the breadth of existing businesses in the area.
    To learn more on how to sign up, please read our guide on contributing to our  BUSINESS SHOWCASE page or email
    If you are employing within the Creative Quarter boundary (SEE MAP), then SUBMIT YOUR JOB HERE.
  3. Life
    The Creative Quarter is much more than a regenerated industrial zone within Nottingham’s centre. The area is already host to a great number of shops, cafes, restaurant, bars and leisure facilities and we want to promote them. We’re looking for individual contributors to submit guides for inclusion within the site. These are more lifestyle and visitor angled, and you can see the existing GUIDES here. What is A GUIDE?
  4. Community
    There are a number of ways in which you can get involved on a more frequent basis through contributing to our Blog or becoming a member of our team of CQ Reporters. To learn more about our CQ reporters, please email, and to read how to contribute a blog, click here.
    If you are looking for employment or regular freelance/consulting work then alongside our JOBS BOARD you can also list yourself in our CANDIDATE DIRECTORY.
  5. News
    If you have any relevant news on the Creative Quarter itself, then please let us know by emailing

I hope that you are able to find the information that you need from the links on this page, and that you enjoy using the website and contributing to the online community it fosters.

Thank you

The Creative Quarter team
