Phil is the coordinator for Creative Cultures Scotland. Creative Cultures is a Scottish registered charity No. SC037834. We are here to help the Creative Sectors of the North East of Scotland communicate with each other and their audiences to create an open and transparent environment in which to talk about and support creative practices. Our remit covers all creative sectors; Craft, Design, Education, Enterprise, Music, Performing arts, Visual Arts and the Written word. We wish to help our creative community realise their potential and promote the professional work on a local, national and international levels.
Phil's personal experience covers many aspects of creative life. He started out as a graphic designer, working for one of Aberdeen's most successful multimedia companies, ending up in London. He became a dad in 2006 and decided for a career change. He studied an MFA at Gray's School of art and became the freelance coordinator for CCS. He still produces design, websites, typography, music and video, and loves to cook. He sees a chance to be creative in many ways.
