About the NI Creative Community

Why join?

We're creating an online home for Northern Irish creatives. Join if you'd like to become part of a community of local creatives discussing the industry, events, our work, and helping each other find jobs all while forging new meaningful connections.

NI Creative Community is open to creatives in any field — from UX design to illustration to filmmaking. If you're making stuff for a living or just for fun come say hi! We can't wait to meet you.

Inclusive and Welcoming

We're committed to operating a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for all, regardless of religious beliefs, gender, sexual orientation, ability, ethnicity, socioeconomic status or other possible differentiators.

What can I expect?

NI Creative Community is a free public Slack community. Once you're a member you can introduce yourself to everyone and join channels relevant to your interests and skill set. You can view our full channel list and discover more in our Community Guide.

Who runs it?

There is no organisation or business behind it. It was created by a group of Northern Ireland based designers who felt a centralised location for NI designers to connect was missing.

Want to become a co-organiser?

We're always open to more help. If you'd like to discuss getting involved with the organisation of the NI Creative Community community please get in touch.

Do You Work in NI Tech?

If you also work in the Northern Irish tech industry we'd recommend joining the NI Tech community — home to 3,000+ NI tech workers.
