Registration for the free, online event is now open.
Minding Creative Minds (MCM) will host their twelfth online meet & greet session this Monday, July 25th at 7pm.
Presented in association with The Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media, EPIC Working Group, Irish Music Rights Organisation (IMRO), Irish Recorded Music Association (IRMA), MCD Productions & The Cowshed, the online session is open to the entire Irish creative community – including those based overseas.
According to Minding Creative Minds' website, "the agenda for our online meet and greet sessions is simple: to share experiences and advice with each other; to have conversations with our peers and creative sector colleagues."
"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."
The event will be chaired by Ann Marie Shields, Director of Minding Creative Minds and Head of Careers, Industry and Events at BIMM Institute.
As with all of MCM's sessions, Monday's event is free - but you will need to register here to access it.
