The Creative Social

The first HCA Creative Social, an event to bring artists, creatives, makers, and designers together will take place on the 4th of November at An Lanntair.

The creative social is a chance to talk informally over a glass of wine about what artists and creatives want to happen on the island, what opportunities can be created for practitioners, and how we can work together to make this happen.

The event will take place between 6-8pm on Friday evening where we will provide a glass or two of wine, some snacks, and the chance to talk about the topics which are important to you, our creatives.

As an added incentive, we would like to offer all attendees half price tickets for North Atlantic Cabaret #2, featuring the author Philip Hoare’s illustrated talk about his book Leviathan Or, The Whale at 8pm, as well as a late night discussion with artist Julie Brook starting at 9.15pm. These tickets are available via the box office only and not online, please pop in or call 01851708480 to secure your ticket.

Please bring along your ideas, and we look forward to seeing you there!
Wine, snacks, and good company will be provided.
