Networking for the arts – Yay or nay? Let me know!

Hey folks… a bit of a question.

So many industries have a once per month networking event. Some networking events are just open networking for folk who want to connect.

In the past, I have found networking events instrumental in building community, which in turn has been instrumental in building audience and support around my arts practice.

So a few questions… please either comment here, or send me an email –

Would you be interested in a once-per-month arts networking event?

If yes, how would you conceive this event:

  • For artists, creative workers and arts admin people mostly?
  • For artists, arts affiliated, and arts lovers?
  • Open networking – drinks hors d’oeuvres at a local pub with no agenda?
  • Event + open networking – a short talk by a local artist or arts worker and a networking session after?
  • A better idea?
