At this first meet up of The Creativity Connection, we are getting together to talk about the impact Covid-19 has had on our local events and creative activities in North Kirklees, how groups and organisations have adapted and where activities have had to be cancelled or postponed.
We will be joined by Nikki Dawson, formerly leader of the Event Management course at University of Huddersfield. Nikki has been event manager with many local events including Batley Festival and HeckmondLIGHT. Nikki will be exploring with us How Events Will Look Different in 2021. As well as finding out about your ambitions and challenges for your events and activities in 2021, she’ll be offering tips on how to get up and running again.
The Creativity Connection is a free, new monthly forum for community groups, voluntary groups and third sector organisations, in or working in, North Kirklees.
Hosted monthly on Zoom by Creative Scene’s Chair Kimberley Thirkill, we’ll share practical tips – how to raise funds, find volunteers, plan an event – as well as make time for conversations about how we want the arts to develop in our towns and neighbourhoods, and what we need to make creativity thrive. There’ll be time to share challenges, resources and ideas and – importantly- to share some fun and social time together.
