Meet & Greet Session 4 – April 19th, 7pm
On Monday April 19th, Minding Creative Minds’ (MCM) in association with The Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media, EPIC Working Group, Irish Music Rights Organization (IMRO), Irish Recorded Music Association (IRMA), MCD Productions & The Cowshed will hold its next online meet and greet session. This MCM Meet and Greet Session is open to the entire creative community in all of Ireland and our Irish overseas.
In previous sessions following the opening words by Ann Marie, we broke into smaller discussion groups. Your feedback to this structure was very positive so we will be following this format at our April session. If you wish to offer feedback on the structure to any session we would love to hear from you to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The aim of our MCM Meet and Greet Session is for attendees to share our experiences, share advice with each other and have a conversation with our peers as we strive to get our sector back to full health. Some of us may wish to tell our story, others may have questions, some of us may wish to attend as spectators just to find out a little more about what we do. Whatever works for you in attending, works for us. We want you to help us shape MCM and our events, so we as an organisation can maximise our efficiency in aiding and supporting your needs.
Rowan McDonagh from The Cowshed says “Minding Creative Minds Meet & Greet Sessions are proving to be a hugely valuable and insightful peek into the many varied issues we are all experiencing during these hard times. We get to see and hear the many different ways we are all affected, from the financial, legal and mental health problems many of us are experiencing in our isolated lives. We are seeing that a shared experience and safe space to voice our concerns and be heard as a community is proving to be a valued collective space. And more so, going forward this is a space we can all return to as a community to seek solace, comfort and unity.”
