Minding Creative Minds is Ireland's first 24/7 wellbeing and support programme for the Irish creative sector.
Minding Creative Minds are set to hold their second online meet-and-greet session this Monday, February 15, at 7pm. Register for free here.
Presented in association with 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 – whether based on these shores or overseas. It will be chaired by Ann Marie Shields, Director of Minding Creative Minds and Head of Careers, Industry and Events at BIMM Institute.
Unlike their inaugural meet-and-greet session, which was interview-led, Monday's session will take a slightly different approach. When registering, participants will be given an opportunity to submit a question or an area of interest they would like to have discussed.
The aim of the meet-and-greet session is to enable attendees to share their experiences, share advice with each other and have a conversation with their peers. Through the sessions, Minding Creative Minds hopes to help in building resources and to facilitate an atmosphere of help and support for all – encouraging an open conversation within the Irish creative community.
Minding Creative Minds is an organisation established to offer a free 24/7 wellbeing & support programme for the Irish creative sector. In December, they were able to open their services to the entire creative community in Ireland, as well as the Irish overseas – around 55,000 people in total.
“In this time of deep personal struggle for many, it’s become more obvious how important music and the arts are to the well-being of our society," says Ann Marie Shields. "I don’t doubt there will be a renewed appreciation for the arts as a result. It’s very encouraging that Minding Creative Minds Meet and Greet sessions enable our music, live and wider creative communities to come together to support each other and share valuable information. By helping each other our artistic community can emerge from this period stronger, wiser and more unified. I’m really looking forward to once again meeting and being inspired by, colleagues, friends and peers at MCM’s next Meet and Greet on February 15th.”
