About the hub

It's all about community

The Illustration Hub, in association with The School of Illustration, is a creative community for illustrators based in the North East of England.  We know from experience how lonely the freelance life can be, so we’re thrilled to be able to create a space where illustrators can connect in a friendly, relaxed environment. And don’t worry, there won’t be any cringey ‘ice breaker’ tasks or competitive exchanging of business cards a la Patrick Bateman in American Psycho!


We offer  an exciting  range of networking opportunities where you can chat with fellow illustrators, learn from top industry speakers and get tips and advice on staying positive and motivated as you navigate your freelance illustration career.  Currently, we run regular networking events,  and in the future we’ll be delivering symposiums, exhibitions and other illustration based happenings - watch this space!
