Kin2Kin, a networking website for Liverpool's creative community, will be relaunched on Wednesday with a "radical new look".

The new site will come with updated news and social features and will make it easier for its 4000 members to show off their work.

Kevin McManus, director of Merseyside ACME, which runs the Kin2Kin website, said: “There’s never been a more important time for making new contacts and keeping in touch with fellow creatives and business contemporaries and this new site is designed to help with that process.

“Kin2Kin.co.uk will continue to do what it has always done, namely provide a strong united voice for the creative community as well as raising company profiles and helping in the quest for new business opportunities.

“Significantly, though and for the first time, Kin will allow non-members viewing access to member profiles providing an unparalleled showcase for the best of the region’s creative talent.”

The new website will be unveiled at Parr Street Studios by renowned designer Jon Barraclough. Wednesday's event will also give guests the chance to hear about a new Creative Opportunities tool for students and graduates in Liverpool.

For more information call Ian Hughes or Cathy Skelly at Liverpool Vision on 0151 600 2900.

Kin2Kin? Sounds like a family-orientated social network site, not a creative industries site.

Or am I missing something?

With frontline social services facing the chop you've got to wonder if this us the best use of public money, especially brcause it duplicates services offered by the likes of The Drum and How-Do. This is effectively a council online newsletter designed to promote ACME a public body. I thought such things had been outlawed.
