VIRTUAL Networking: #CreativeNetworkCrafts - Free Zoom Networking Friday 3 July

Fri, 03/07/2020

Voluntary Arts has set up a new online network to connect anyone working, volunteering or participating in crafts in all its forms, including heritage crafts, amateur crafts and those involved with crafts education, organising, delivery and promotion across the UK and Ireland.

We are delighted to announce that Voluntary Arts have teamed up with the Heritage Craft Association to co-host regular monthly #CreativeNetworkCrafts Zoom sessions that take place on the first Friday of each month, from 9:30 to 10:30am and will focus on a different theme each month. This new community will share ideas, inspire and support each other through lockdown and beyond.

Please join us for the next #CreativeNetworkCrafts on Friday 3 July from 9:30am-10:30am when we will be joined by Baroness Sue Garden of Frognal, the Vice-Chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Craft (APPG) and Patricia Lovett, who is the secretary of the APPG and Chair of the Heritage Crafts Association.  They will be introducing the work of the APPG and will lead a discussion on how the grassroots crafts community can speak to government.  We will also hear from Lucy McGrath from MARMOR PAPERIE about her experience as a craftsperson speaking at the APPG, and from Gareth Coles, Director of Voluntary Arts Wales, who will outline some of the work that Voluntary Arts does to support the crafts sector, which includes advocacy, partnership working and research.

To join this conversation visit the #CreativeNetwork page and click the #CreativeNetworkCrafts Join button just before 9:30am on Friday 3 July 2020.

You can also join our private Facebook Group here, to share ideas, ask questions, post videos, inspire and be inspired, connect and create.

The following #CreativeNetworkCrafts Zoom Meet-up will take place on Friday 7 August at 9:30am, and the theme is going to be 'Craftivism' with our guests to be announced soon.

These online events are part of Voluntary Arts' regular #CreativeNetwork - a daily online get-together open to anyone involved in arts, culture and creativity who would welcome the opportunity to talk to others about dealing with the current situation, the challenges of working from home and what we can do together to make positive changes in difficult circumstances.  To find out more visit
