Purple and Grey networking events are very casual affairs and a lot of fun, held on a selected Wednesday 1030-12 We travel around the county and it's borders giving artists and makers the opportunity to visit some of the region's top art spaces , galleries and venues.
This has kept our events fresh and interesting with the opportunity for new people to attend and truly embrace the meaning of networking. For our venue hosts it has brought them a new audience and in the case of galleries new exhibitors.
We only hold a few a year which also makes them something to look forward too.
Our next networking events are:
