News of a new network initiative coming out of the Glasgow BiCon

In the bisexual community, there’s a large group of talented and creative people.  There are also a lot of people who would love to be able to make bi projects happen but while great at the organisational side, could use a little bit more help on making their project look as shiny as it is.

The idea behind The Bisexual Creative Network is to build a resource of creatives, (artists, photographers, graphic artists, designers, typographers, writers and editors) who are willing to give time and energy, working either collectively or as individuals, to projects that will benefit the bisexual community.

The Creative Bisexual Network currently has members skilled in the following areas: art, calligraphy, design (typographic, graphic, branding and corporate identity), photography and body painting.

Also within the collective are experienced and competent users of the following software, (on both the Mac and PC platforms): Dreamweaver, Flash, Freehand, Fireworks, Illustrator, PageMaker, PagePlus, Photoshop, Quark Xpress as well as coding for HTML and the web.

Most of us are currently based in the UK, although given the ability of people to work electronically there’s no reason why people shouldn’t be involved and work from all around the world.

If you’d be interested in joining the collective, identify as bisexual, (you don’t need to be ‘out’, outside of the collective) and have creative skills that you’re willing to give free of charge to the community, click on the link below to join. Please include a couple of lines explaining a bit about you and your skills.
