Creative Courtyard is a free artist-led networking event and creative gym at Academy Studios. This is different from other networking events you may have attended before, a more participatory model where artists take centre stage. 

With Creative Courtyard, we aim to create a peer exchange group of collectives, individuals, small companies and creative start-ups in the arts industry to connect through collaborative activities, including open discussions and creative challenges. We would also like this group to influence and inspire the direction we take as an artist-led organisation. The format changes every time so stay tuned for information about the next event.

This time, artists will have the chance to present work-in-progress and receive feedback. This scratch night-like event is designed as a laboratory for artists to try out new ideas in front of an audience. We will announce the line up on social media.

The next event is scheduled for:
