Creative Warwickshire Masterclass and Networking – Creative Collaborations
Creative Warwickshire – a dedicated and intensive business support programme aimed at creative and digital freelancers and businesses who have ambitions to grow their businesses, develop new markets and enhance their business skills – is pleased to be hosting their 2nd Masterclass & Networking Event on the 8th December 2016 at the Episode Hotel in Leamington.
Our topic for this Masterclass & Networking Event is ‘Creative Collaborations – collaboration is central to the creative process’. From venues such as the RSC and Warwick Arts Centre working with artists and performers, the scope of collaboration has been transformed with digital technology. Increasingly the arts and digital converge in exciting new ways to experiment, create, distribute and educate.
Based on this topic, we are delighted to welcome our two guest speakers, Annouchka Bayley, Emerging Director at RSC and Researcher at University of Warwick and Andrew Pulford, Director of Planning and Operations at Warwick Arts Centre.
6pm – 6.15pm – registration and welcome
6.20p – 7.30pm – guest speakers and Q&A session
7.30pm – 8pm – Christmas canapes, drinks and the chance to network
8pm – close
Please note that this event is open to all - so feel free to share the event with your friends!
We look forward to seeing you on the 8th December!
