Coffee and a yarn: One of the key learnings we gathered from the pilot program is the enormous value of networking and collaboration. In light of this, we invite you to an informal get together at the Hunter Region Botanic Gardens Cafe at 10:30am on Wednesday 18 May 2016 in Heatherbrae. We think regular get-togethers would be very valuable for the Port Stephens Creative Professionals and from this first meeting, perhaps the group can establish some regular catch ups moving forward. We will develop a list of contacts (with contact details) to share amongst this group – if you would like your contact details shared, please let me know. This is also a great chance for those who were unable to make some of the dates of the Smart Arts Workshops to gain insights and learnings from those who did attend.
