WHAT HAPPENS NEXT
Among the things we are planning for 2018 is to assess the legacy of the conferences and to reconnect with the Creative Minds community, especially the partners listed below. Already a CREATIVE MINDS NORTHERN HUB has been established and it’s first meeting took place in December at the Mind the Gap studios in Bradford. The meeting created a calendar of upcoming events many of which are in the planning. These will be posted in the Events section of this web site as they get confirmed. Their was a healthy exchange of news and a commitment to sharing and supporting each other throughout the region and to meet twice a year. Representatives from Mind the Gap, Prism Arts, Creative Minds, Dark Horse, DIY and the Blue Room were there along with a guest from Blue Teapot (Galway).
