Meet & Greet – Session 1 with Bressie

On Tuesday December 1st Minding Creative Minds’ (MCM) in association with EPIC Working Group, Irish Music Rights Organization (IMRO), Irish Recorded Music Association (IRMA) & The Cowshed will hold its first online meeting.  The MCM Meet and Greet Session will commence at 7pm and our entire music and live events sector is invited to attend, but advance registration is necessary as numbers are limited. Just click here and follow the instructions. If you have difficultly registering, you are welcome to contact

The aim of our MCM Meet and Greet Session is to enable 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. By holding our MCM Meet and Greet Session, Minding Creative Minds wants to help in building resources and facilitate an atmosphere of help and support for all and encourage an open conversation within our community.   Some of us may wish to tell our story, others may have questions, some of us may wish to attend, leave our cameras in the off position and just listen.  Whatever works for you in attending, works for us. We are looking forward to having you with us on December 1st.

In this first meeting host by Stuart Clarke of Hot Press, we are privileged to confirm Psychotherapist & author, Siobhán Murray ( and Musician and mental health advocate Niall Breslin (Bressie) as special guests.   Stuart will chat with Siobhán about her work, and in a wider realm her advice to our sector.  We anticipate the meeting will initially last a little over an hour.  At first our meetings will be online, however, once Covid-19 restrictions are loosened we will be able to eventually meet in person! 

When registering for the event, you are also welcome (if you wish) to submit a question for Niall (Bressie).  Time should allow for ten questions to be answered.  If wished, your question can be anonymous just follow the instructions to enable this when registering.
