anam creative was set up in 2020 by Michiel Turner as an online space for him and his peers to collaborate on music projects together remotely; this was funded by Nurturing Talent – Time to Shine Fund. The following year, Michiel received a grant from Creative Scotland's Sustaining Creative Development Fund to run a five-month-long 'arts collaboration' project commissioning new work between him, three other musicians, two visual artists and one writer.
In 2022, anam creative established themselves as a Community Interest Company with a mission to support emerging creatives with paid opportunities. It is now collectively run with other artists from the previous 'arts collaboration' project.
Over the last year (2022) anam has hosted four sold-out live music and arts events showcasing some of the most innovative young artists in Scotland right now.
