Ouseburn Trust (and others) sponsored and supported the delivery of this project of Durham University Business School - Creative GLEAM - a focused version of their wider Graduate Learning of Entrepreneurship Accelerated through Mentoring which they had been running since 1998.

It offered a programme of business development workshops in Ouseburn Valley and mentoring from people running their own creative businesses (many based in Ouseburn). It recruited 20 graduates in year one, and 18 in year two.

The first programme culminated in a showcase event 'Adventures of Creative GLEAM' held in our premises at 51 Lime Street.
