Description

Join us for a fantastic event in an alternative setting!

Whether you are a designer, maker, art therapist or social changemaker this event is for you....

As part of our quarterly Lunch & Learn series in partnership with the Big Heart Skills Network, we're bringing together a range of social and ethical designer makers, artists and entrepreneurs who run community and social enterprise activites, spaces and organisations, to look at how arts, culture, creativity and production are vehicles to create personal, community and societal change. This event combines an interactive panel from trailblazing women changemakers across the NW managing community enterprise manufacturing ventures, practical arts and cultural changemaking workshops led by our speakers and following a delicious lunch we'll run afternoon sessions looking at practical business development sessions to support your social and ethical venture to flourish......
