Thanks to those who came to March’s Network Meet-Up. Insightful conversations were had around PRS, public liability, venue and alcohol licensing. It was agreed we will collate information for a licensing resource in our Know How.
Join us online for our next Network Meet-Up on Mon 17 April, 10.30am-12noon. Register here.
33 promoters have so far expressed interest in joining our first micro-network. If you haven’t done so already, please complete the questionnaire Fee has emailed you so we can learn more about you and get match-making. We’ll share the outcome w/c 20 March.
Claire was out on the road this month. She co-chaired the Combine to Create learning exchange, where she heard inspiring examples of the impact culture and creativity can have on communities, through Findhorn Bay Arts and Culture Collective. Learn more about it here.
Claire was also part of Springboard, an event hosted by Creative Carbon Scotland to encourage creative climate action. She waved the flag for rural issues in relation to meeting net-zero, and was part of the cohort addressing decarbonisation of theatre-making and dance.
“Both events were inspiring and so valuable for bringing people together from different backgrounds and sectors to address the challenges we’re all facing around capacity and funding. A notable takeaway was that space to consider issues, create and meaningfully collaborate, must be afforded if real long lasting and impactful change is to be made. So watch this space…”
