This event is part of the CONNECT strand in our new autumn/winter programme;
DEVELOP - MAKE - CONNECT - SHOW.
Designed to take the fear out of networking, this event provides photographers and artists with the opportunity to talk about their work and make new connections, all in pain-free, 10-minute slots!
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 22 February 2017 for our anti-networking event at Cherry Reds Bar, Birmingham.
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.
In partnership with Grain.
This event starts at 18:00 on 22 February 2017 until 20:00. Doors open at 17:30.
