16 Mar Creative Connections Training Session 2 – March 21st
Thank you to those who attended the 1st Creative Connections session last week, we had some great feedback with the majority feeling that it was an informative and constructive day
We would now like to invite you now to attend the second Training Session which will take place in the Bush Hotel (www.bushhotel.com) in Carrick-on-Shannon on March 21st, 10.30am – 16:00pm
Please note that although attendance at all four training days is important, if you did miss the first one, please feel free to attend as there will still be opportunities to learn and share.
We also urge you to take a few moments to complete this survey if you haven’t already done so. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/PPY8CQZ. The results of the survey will help us to identify needs within our thriving creative sector and to secure funding to provide more events in the future .Many thanks for your assistance. We really appreciate you taking the time to do this.
