The Minding Creative Minds event will take place tomorrow (Thursday, June 9) on the fourth floor of the Guinness Enterprise Centre, Dublin, from 6pm to 8pm.
Irish organisation Minding Creative Minds are hosting their first in-person event since the Covid lockdowns tomorrow, June 9th, in Dublin city centre.
The free-to-attend coffee meet-up is taking place from 6pm-8pm on the fourth floor of the Guinness Enterprise Centre, D08 YEOP.
The event is being kept relatively simple, given that it's the first mentor meeting where Zoom won't be used, with another expected this September.
The event brings with it an opportunity to meet the Minding Creative Minds team, mentors and mentees from Minding Creative Minds' past programmes.
The pressure of making money is significant in the entertainment sector and can have a negative impact creatively, as well as on your wellbeing.
Minding Creative Minds is Ireland's first 24/7 (32 county and our Irish overseas) wellbeing support programme for the entire Irish creative sector. The group's financial advisors can help alleviate that financial stress that comes with a creative career.
The initiative, which had been in planning since 2018 by Choice Music Prize co-founder, artist manager and psychotherapy graduate Dave Reid, was launched during the summer of 2020.
Initially, Minding Creative Minds services were open to the music sector only; including artists, artist managers, support staff and live music events staff, however, as a direct result of additional funding within six months the organisation’s services were opened up to the entire creative sector; almost one year ahead of schedule.
