Being a freelance creative is brilliant but it can also be quite isolating and so we hope these bi-monthly sessions will become a regular opportunity to get out to the studio and socialise with other likeminded creatives.
The sessions will take place on Monday evenings from 6-8pm. The sessions will be free to attend but like our MNL’s we will ask makers to confirm they’re coming using eventbrite. This allows us to confirm attendance numbers and keep track of those attending.
The 2019 dates are as follows:
21 January, 18 March, 20 May, 22 July, 23 September, 18 November 2019
The structure of the sessions will evolve and change as those attending can help shape and mould them to what they want/need.
It might be a general networking / get to know one another session. We may look at bringing along professionals to lead talks or discussions, they may be creative and hands on. Maker Mondays will also provide makers the opportunity to feed into Making Space going forth, sharing your needs and thoughts on what we’re doing and how we can evolve together, with our space being best use for you/other makers!
For the first session on Monday January 21, we’d like it to keep it simple with a ‘getting to know you’ session. All those attending can do a short 5-10minute talk about them/their practice/their work (please feel free to bring along samples of work) so everyone can get to know one another in a relaxed and informal way. Afterwards there will be a chance for general networking over some free drinks provided by Making Space.
Free parking is available in the car park behind Making Space after 6pm. You can book your free place on the first ever Maker Mondays by clicking here. Please feel free to share with other makers and invite anyone else you think might be interested.
