Meet & Greet 8 – August 30th

On Monday August 30th, 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.

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.

Our forthcoming Meet & Greet will be our eighth session.
What I am most struck by during these gatherings is the amazing network of professionals there are in the Irish arts sectors and what a supportive, kind and innovative group of people we all are part of. The beauty of the meetings is that there is no specific agenda for each meeting so we share whatever is the most relevant information for our sector that week, and we have time to get to know each other in smaller break-out rooms . The atmosphere is friendly and there is no pressure on anyone to participate more than they want to. It’s been a lovely way for each of us to broaden our network, during what otherwise could have been quite an isolating time.
