The Cultural Connectedness Exchange Day is a time and place for members of the network to come together and make plans, voice sector concerns and learn from other creative people about their practice.
Irish and Northern artists, along with those who commission Irish work in England, come together for a series of engaging sessions in which we discuss our creative work, experience artist-led interactions and make connections. This is a day for professional networking, peer-to-peer conversations and activity that helps to build a better creative community.
