Building a thriving community for creatives in Kent
With Meet-ups and One day events, Kent Creative Connect provides opportunities to learn and create fruitful connections:
It’s all about people and relationships. Some that you build over time by meeting the same people again and again (developing mutual knowledge and trust) and other that you create by meeting new people.
Working on your own as a freelance can be quite lonely sometimes. You will meet like-minded people, entering debates, receiving support, live enthusiasm, mutual understanding, motivation, feedback, advice etc…leading to raised confidence, and things triggered in your own to move forward.
“This is a wonderful service you are providing to the arts and creative communities in Kent. Well done!” Richard Belfield“Good range of artists, good experience in their areas and a wealth of experience and talent to be harnessed and hopefully encouraged to work together in some creative and productive sense as time goes on.”Alex Hare“The rich and broad talents offered by people there and their delightful philosophical interludes made it a great and productive hour well spent.”Sophie Jongman“As enjoyable and as useful as expected. Being able to see, meet talk to and listen to other creatives is always great and today was no exception.” Derek Seaward
Our FREE meet-ups combine opportunities to meet other artists and practitioners with talks by experts. They are simple get togethers with like-minded creative people chatting away, to include:
Creatives talk about their career, work, techniques and guest speakers cover topics on a wide range of creative issues, such as marketing, social media and much more…
There is plenty of time for chat and networking – many rewarding personal and professional relationships have started there.
A number of times a year, we host day long networking and learning events for creative professionals and artists. Our ultimate goal being to support and promote the artistic, cultural and creative sector in the county as a whole.
