The Arts and Culture Network

In 2010, I started a group on LinkedIn called the Arts and Culture Network and promptly forgot all about it. How I wish I‘d done the same with Bitcoin!


By 2020, we were over 10,000 strong so I hosted a one-hour random speed networking event so that we could all get to know each other better. It was a great success.


We all got to meet several colleagues at random in a series of short meetings in small groups. We made new connections, started conversations, and discovered opportunities for collaboration. People have been hired at our events.


So … in November 2021 I started a series of events, and added The TAD Talk (The Arts Debate), a 10-minute speed webinar at half time.

We then launched a membership plan at just £10 per month to provide subscribers with enhanced and supported opportunities to develop their own networks, careers, and businesses.


The Arts and Culture Network is now a growing global community of over 120,000 practitioners, professionals and industry service providers shaping the future of our industry together.

We are independent, self-governing, inclusive, diverse, sustainable and more than a bit pirate. 🏴‍☠️
