Speed Creative Networking is a chance for creatives in the area to connect. You’ll have 5 minutes to tell each other who you are, talk a little bit about your work, learn about someone else’s work and find out about all the creatives you didn’t know existed in the area. Feel free to mention collaborations, bring business cards, postcards, or whatever you feel best helps you explain your work and who you are. This is a chance to present your work in an intimate and friendly space with creatives, artists and Photographers in the Yorkshire area.
