Random Speed Networking - It's fun, fast and effective.
The Arts & Culture Network is a growing global community of professionals shaping the future of arts and culture together. We have over 13,000 members on LinkedIn.
At 1pm (GMT) on Thursday 3rd March I'm hosting another hour of random speed networking including a TAD Talk speed webinar.
We all get to meet 9 or more fellow members and guests, at random, in a series of 1-2-1s and small groups in under an hour, without leaving our desks, or dressing from the waist down if we don't want to.
It's fun, fast and effective and we've had some great feedback. We've had several reports of follow on meetings, artistic collabration, business deals and hires.
The TAD Talk
At half time, we present a 10-minute speed webinar called the TAD Talk (The Arts Debate)
Jon Alexander is the author of the newly published book CITIZENS: Why the Key to Fixing Everything is All of Us.
His central argument is that we are living in a moment in time when the story that has dominated our society for the last 80 years - the Consumer Story - is collapsing around us, and threatens to take us down with it; but that at the same time a new story is taking shape.
If we can see and step into a story of ourselves and each other as Citizens, not just Consumers, we could change the world - and the arts and culture sector could lead the way.
The book features a foreword by Brian Eno, who has described it as "deeply important", and among other case studies features Jon's extensive work with the National Trust; in his talk he will also draw on work with Tate, the Wellcome Collection, and more.
We had over 90 at our December event and over 400 have joined us at our events since November 2021.
