The collaborative event will host a blend of drop-in style workshop activities, all delivered by early-career creatives. Join us to feel more connected to your creative community, inspired to collaborate, and creatively re-charged.

Workshops will be delivered by Sonia Burns, Roo Dhissou, Morel O'Sullivan, and Amy Vallance. The event is free, all are welcome to drop in and out. Food and refreshments will be provided, including a jacket potato buffet served with a selection of vegan fillings.
