ABOUT CREATIVE TALKS
Renew Newcastle presents Creative Talks, a series of breakfast lectures by people who are making a living from their creativity. Taking place on a Friday morning every month for three months (beginning July 2013) a well-regarded creative will be invited to speak for 30 minutes about the lessons they have learnt growing their art into a commercial success.
This will be followed by an audience Q&A and the opportunity to mingle with local creatives from a wide range of backgrounds. Attendance is free and breakfast (coffee, tea, pastries and fruit) is provided.
