"Mark, the Arts and Culture Network is FANTASTIC!! The monthly zoom networking events far exceeded my expectations. I have met many wonderful new people, with whom I have since collaborated. It's opened many doors for me, which has been a huge benefit. Many thanks!" (Lauren Grierson)

Before Lauren's TAD Talk we will all have the opportunity to introduce ourselves for 30 seconds and after her talk, we will be random speed networking. We will all be paired up, at random, for 5 minutes, to connect, start conversations and explore opportunities for artistic and cultural collaboration.

For those who don't have to dash off at 2pm, the after party for open networking is legendary and where much of the magic happens.

Join us as a full member for just £10 per month (or £100 per year) for supported and enhanced access to our network, and my own, to grow and develop your own, your network, career, and/or business.

“I've just joined!! £10 a month for a 1:1 business growth session, free networking, and access to all the events (on top of everything else!)?! This is INSANE value for money Mark and I'm so grateful for everything you've done to build such a supportive network of like-minded creative professionals.” (Sarah Hunt - West End Coach)

I hope to see you there.
