What is OpenLink?
An informal social meet-up bringing together, arts & creative practitioners, local residents and business owners, welcoming arts, culture, tourism and heritage professionals from across Nottingham.
Open Link is a reception network. It aims to connect you to appropriate projects and contacts. You can suggest networks or initiatives you'd like more information.
It's role is to engage effectively with the initiatives emerging within the OpenLink location for 'Everyone'.
