European Networks and Networking
Wed 16 December 2015, 11:00 – 18:30 GMT
Collaboration is a key part of Creative Europe and joining a European network of creative, cultural or heritage organisations can be a great way to engage in new conversations and meet potential partners to collaborate with.
Therefore, Creative Europe Desk UK invites you to the first in a series of events that give UK organisations insight into various European and international networks and help them to be better networked and more integrated in European conversations. On this occasion, we will discuss the value of networks, and hear experiences and case studies from experienced professionals and network representatives.
Places are limited for this event but please register your interest in attending by signing up to this free event and we will confirm your registration by Tuesday 8 December.
