Connect the Dots - Lunchtime social for freelance & self-employed creatives


This friendly group welcome any fellow creatives who want to bring a bit more social activity into their (sometimes) lonely freelance existence.

The meeting is really informal and organised to provide a place for like-minded people to meet up, chat about all things freelancing and possibly even find some potential opportunities for collaboration. Come and have your lunch, settle in with us and make some great connections.

In the three events previous there have been graphic designers, illustrators, writers, photographers & developers. Everyone would love to meet more local freelance/self employed people within the creative industry and build a supportive community of professional individuals. Be sure to bring along your thoughts about future event ideas (they've had a games night and a Christmas night out in 2016), what challenges you are currently facing as a creative in the city, and what plans you have for your business.

If you've not been before, don't be frightened - they're a super friendly bunch and you'll be made to feel welcome.

If you're not a freelancer but are thinking perhaps you could put the skills of one to use, then please do feel free to come along, it would be the perfect place to catch a wealth of talent and have a chat about potential projects.

There is 2 hours free parking in the area if you can find a space. There is also a pay & display car park across the road at the old Cains Brewery.

Spaces are limited so do book in to avoid disappointment.

See you there from 12-2pm!
