#CreativeConnect Networking

Friendly and informative networking for Glasgow creatives and freelancers. Currently taking place monthly on Zoom.

Our networking sessions take place once a month over Zoom. They are open to both Glasgow CAN members and non-members and are always FREE to attend. It is friendly, informal and a great opportunity to connect with fellow artists, freelancers and organisations. Each month we usually have a guest speaker or a particular topic or theme.

Upcoming Events

Create Grant Mini Fest!

Thursday 22nd April, 4pm - 6pm via Zoom

We are hosting a digital festival-style sharing event to showcase what the recent recipients of our new Create Grant have achieved through their funded projects from January to March 2021.

The Create Grant is funded through Glasgow City Council’s Glasgow Community Fund.  Each of the four recently funded creative projects will demonstrate examples of the kinds of activities they have delivered in partnership with communities and groups, with help from their Create Grant. You may even get to participate in some mini activities if you like! You will get to see how practitioners have adapted their projects to be able to deliver them digitally during lockdown. For the event finale there will be a 30 minute Q&A panel discussion where attendees can ask recipients about the application process, challenges a they’ve faced and the impact their projects have had on participants and the communities they’ve worked with.

If you are looking to apply for the Create Grant in the future, this event is a must as you will get to see first hand they types of projects which Glasgow CAN has funded and hear first hand from peers about real projects which have been delivered.

We would strongly encourage our newest members of Glasgow CAN to come along to this event, especially if you are aspiring towards working in the participatory arts sector and securing funding to deliver your own Participatory Arts project in the future.

So come along and get inspired. This event it a chance to connect’ learn and have some fun!

This event is free for Glasgow CAN members and non-members. However, we would like to highlight that any pay-what-you-can contributions which are made will go directly back into sustaining the Create Grant fund, which will help to support future Participatory Arts projects with hard-to-reach groups in Glasgow.
