Liverpool's creative developement agency ACME are launching the brand new network in September. OK it has the same name as the old Liverpool network but we are promised something brand new and a bit more function than the old site, as it has been built from the ground up by Design Agency Splinter. I should know I helped with the user testing, so I hope they took my advice. 

Yes, ACME has been busy reinventing this unique site that promotes Liverpool's creative community, and it will soon be ready for creatives to update their profile and portfolio, and re-connect with others and with your Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn accounts.

What's it all about then...... 

be noticed - kin now actively promotes an open showcase of its members to the world. Membership is still only for those based in Liverpool but the directory of talent will be open to anyone who needs to find a creative from the city. It also has refined categories of work that enable you to describe your offer in a richer, more searchable way and share your work and stories easily, using your existing social and business networks.

be informed - kin now offers a dynamic calendar of news, events and postings to keep you up to date with the essential information to inform your creative practice.

be part of it - kin is largely user populated with opportunities and requests that will help you find collaborators, commissioners of work and requests for your skills and ambitions. From the 10th September we'll be inviting you to visit the new kin, update your content, and take part in our testing of the site's unique range of new functions. We'll also be inviting you to a special get-together on the 20th September at Camp and Furnace. Selected portfolios will be on show and there will be an opportunity to find out more about where kin is at and what's on offer from the site.

Attend the launch of kin; Liverpool's most popular and active network for creative beings.

Cool venue, great music, delicious titbits and quality contacts as standard.

Thursday 20th September 2012
6pm to 8pm
Camp and Furnace
67 Greenland Street
Liverpool
L1 0BY

RSVP here by the 19th September 2012.
