Kent Creative Online Meet-up – Friday 9th April 2021

Two artists present their work: Anne Fontenoy and Kelly Kraus (Team Sikel).

A free meet-up designed for artists in Kent to chat, collaborate, learn, share ideas and get support.  It’s a good time to reflect on the past week and discuss all things creatives.

It’s a simple get together with like-minded creative people supporting each other and an opportunity to get feedback from the group.  It’s about building a more robust community for artists and creatives where the support comes from the community itself.

  • 10:00 – Logging in and warming up
  • 10:05 – Attendees briefly introduce themselves. It’s a good way to get to know who is around.
  • 10:10 – Two artists present their work: Anne Fontenoy (Fine art and dress design) and Kelly Kraus from Team Sikel (handmade from reclaimed materials).
  • 10:50 – Share news, promote events, ask for help or advice from the group, get a bit of feedback on an idea…
  • 11:00 – Random one-to-one sessions talking to another attendee in the group.
  • 11:15 – Close
  • Some extra time for an informal chat…
