Ever had that overwhelming feeling of social anxiety when the word 'networking' is muttered? Ever avoided walking up to a person and introducing yourself as a photographer or artist? Then struggled to remember what your work is, never mind coherently talk about it?
If the answer to any of the above is 'yes', 'maybe' or 'please stop talking about networking', join us on Saturday 13 July for our anti-networking event at Manchester Craft and Design Centre.
This event is part of the Manifest Arts Festival 2019 that runs from Friday 12 to Sunday 21 July. For more information on the whole programme of exciting events and open studios do visit their website or social media.
At Speed Networking, you won't be thrown into a pit of humans and forced to navigate the room like a lost sheep. Instead, you'll sit down with another friendly photographer or artist, tell each other a bit about your work and then move on to the next friendly photographer or artist to repeat the process. Easy, right? By the time you've made your way around the room, you'll have talked about your work so many times you'll be uttering your elevator pitch in your sleep.
This event is the perfect place to practise presenting your work, and to meet with other photographers and artists in the region.
Who is it for?
This event is for anyone who would like to develop their networking, speaking and creative social skills in a relaxed and informal setting.
We encourage you to bring examples of your artistic work with you - either in printed format or on a laptop/tablet screen.
Saturday 13 July, 1-3pm.
Doors open at 12.30pm.
Manchester Craft and Design Centre, 17 Oak Street, Northern Quarter, Manchester, M4 5JD.
