Creative Youth Network and Rife at Watershed bring you CONNECT, the third in the programme of networking events and opportunities for emerging and early career creatives. However this time, its in person as part of the Reignite festival, supporting emerging creatives to reignite their creative practice and careers post lockdown.

Friday 17th December 2021, 5:30pm

The Station, Silver Street, BS1 2AG

CONNECT is a space and place to meet likeminded people, make connections to develop your network and feel motivated and inspired in a networking event that is informal, fun and accessible, meaning no need to feel anxious about having to network, talk about yourself or approach people you don’t know.

CONNECT is a hosted event that encourages you to be you, share as much or as little as you’d like and meet new people in a way that doesn’t make you go too far out of your comfort zone.

The theme of the event is to reconnect, reignite and celebrate being you. Followed afterwards by The House of Savalon which is all about celebrating difference, identity and you!

Refreshments available. 

Hosted by Adibah Iqbal

Guest Speakers: Oona Chanfi and Millie Wood-Downie
