Hey Madeleine! Thanks for letting me know you couldn't make it to the talk yesterday. I'm going to run it again on Sat 6th July - can you make that date? If you can then just RSVP here: http://www.meetup.com/Understand_Men/.... Hope to see you there! Siobhan
This group is for creatives who want to meet other creatives. It is for networking, mingling, chatting and meeting like minded people. It will also be a prime opportunity of course to, if you want to, discuss projects, organize activities, exchange opinions and advice, meeting just (maybe?) the right person for that project you had in mind. I personally would like to find people to play in a band with, as well as a group of actors and directors to put together a comedy/ drama play... where for free I can practice, getting experience and having the excitement of having something created out of nothing. I'm in particular interested in meeting people from the following industries: theatre/cinema, media, music, fashion. I'm considering the art industry also as a possible career change for the future, but without pressure, so it could be a way to getting the foundations in place. And you, what would you like to do and who would you like to meet?
Mostly though, it is simply about meeting and socializing with people with similar interests, just having the opportunity of meeting people you may be more likely to keep in touch with and have a drink together.
Note for non-creatives: to join the group I ask for a brief introduction of yourself, and you'll automatically be part of the group. A brief one liner it is more than fine, as long as you don't just write your name or something similar in your introduction. I request the introduction for one reason, namely to know whether you are a 'creative' - it's like, I like cars and want to hung about with people with similar interest, I'll join a group of car lovers. I don't want random people to just join 'just for fun' or whatever, there are plenty of other groups for that. If you want to join this group is because you are looking for something similar to what I described in more details above, you share a common interest. Don't join just for random reasons, I will remove you.
