WELCOME TO THE FIRST BLOCK PARTY OF 2019!!!

An afternoon in the room with some of the brightest creative talents today, both on stage and sitting next to you.

Following on from the fabulous BP01 in October we're back on the BLOCK, no not Jenny's, the super cool Hatch in Central Manchester.

"The venue was just right, really cool"

We're very happy to announce the talents 'on stage' at BP02 will be:

Gavin Strange

Multi Skilled Animator, Director and Illustrator and member of the Aardman Animations Creative Team behind the Academy Award winning Wallace and Gromit and Shaun the Sheep

• Emmeline Pidgen

Award Winning Illustrator & IPSE Freelancer of the Year 2017 whose clients include BBC, Tesco and NHS.


The Block Party is an opportunity for anyone witha creative passion to come together, share ideas, insight and thier experiences in a format which is relaxed, non-pretentious and most of all, fun.

"...it was really informative and relaxed"


The day will be run in 2 main parts:


Q&As

A 60-minute Q&A with each of the featured creative talents. An in-depth, group discussion about their experience, how they’ve got to where they are, their areas of focus, thoughts on the industry and what gets them out of bed in the morning. It's not a panel or a presentation, we'll want to hear your views and be asking everyone to chip in. The featured creatives are all excited to share some insights and gain some from you in return.

"I felt very comfortable asking questions"


1-2-1s

For the second part of the Block Party we want to give YOU the opportunity to sit down and have a personal, 15-minute 1-2-1 with one of the featured talents. You can bring work to talk through or just have a coffee and a chat, but ultimately THIS IS YOUR OPPORTUNITY to gain some personalised insight from some incredibly experienced people.

These will run from 5pm - 7pm above the coffee shop TAKK and will be 15 minutes each.

--

There will also be independent food stalls onsite, selling some of the best street food known to man, alongside the OL Beer Brewery and a fully stocked bar with many other fine beverages.

The Crazy Animal Face Soundsystem will also be in full effect across the day, with Duncan from the Dutch Uncles jumping on the 1's and 2's from 6pm. THAT'S RIGHT, THE DUTCH UNCLES!! YOU KNOW, BBC 6 MUSIC, GLASTONBURY...

Sold? Ok, here's the small print...

--

1. Tickets will be sold on a first come first served basis.

2. The Q&As will start shortly after 14:00 and will each last around 60 minutes with breaks in between.

3. Your 1-2-1 slot will be 15 minutes long and will be allocated on a first come first served basis. be chosen at random. This is the fairest way, with the people who book tickets first allocated the earliest available time slot.

4. There will also be the chance to purchase work by the featured creatives.

--

The CAF Block Party is a creative's melting pot. You’ll leave it feeling motivated, full of ideas and inspiration to kick off your journey in 2019. You don't need to be in the industry already or established. If you just want to create something new in some way, we want to hear from you.

We can’t wait to see you there!!
