More about this event
This event is part of a series of events planned by Creative Scotland’s Creative Learning team, managed by Red Bridge Arts taking place from November 2018 to March 2019. The events aim to inspire practice and support networking and skills development.

Who should come?
The events are for practitioners from arts and non-arts sectors who work with, or want to work with, arts and people. 30% of tickets will be reserved for non-arts practitioners.
