IdeasMag launches on Hiive

One part of the huge legacy that IdeasTap left was IdeasMag, a rich editorial archive featuring articles, blogs and interviews about getting started (and getting ahead) in the creative industries. We are please to announce that all the content from IdeasMag is now hosted on Hiive, where it will continue to reach an audience of young creatives.

As our friends at Hiive put it: “IdeasMag was the editorial heart of IdeasTap, with bundles of wise words and wisdom for budding creatives, in the form of how-tos, guides, interviews and opinion pieces. Covering all aspects of the creative and cultural world, hosting this archive will continue to inspire and educate performing artists and creatives in their careers for many years to come.”
