The third event of its kind at Tacchi-Morris Arts Centre, this dynamic evening of ‘creative speed dating’ is not to be missed. Offering an unrivalled networking opportunity for local businesses, artists, venues, graduates, teachers, writers, creatives and not-for-profit organisations this free networking event offers participants the chance to woo their perfect creative partner… put the balls into their business plan… or just come and make a host of new Somerset arts and business connections!

The evening also features an opening address by the Director of Arts Health South West, Alex Coulter who will share some inspirational tips on opening up your organisation to new ideas and partnerships and how to find new creative ways of working, citing some examples from her extensive experience across the arts and health sectors.

There will be complimentary drinks and refreshments, an appearance by PocketFluff Productions who will be performing a short aerial piece, quick-fire networking ‘speed dating-style’, with partners given just four minutes in which to discuss, debate, dissect and devour some creative ideas and links between them.

Director of Tacchi-Morris Arts Centre Louise Lappin-Cook said “this event has proved hugely popular in previous years – and we’ve had some fabulous outcomes: festival organisers have sourced artists, a dementia project explored links with an interactive film maker, a local accountant picked up several new clients, a new film project was born involving local students from Richard Huish College and Heathfield Community School, and many other businesses and creatives found some new interesting Somerset connections to explore. I think the fast-paced style of the evening makes for a great way to very quickly and informally touch base with a vast number of people in the county.”

Among the attendees at last years event were: Bridgwater College, Somerset County Gazette, Taunton Deane Borough Council, Miles Tea Rooms, Creative Somerset, Somerset County Council, Story Well, Illustrators, Filmmakers, Marketing Specialists, Accountants, Flamenco Specialists, Taunton Comedy Festival, Writers, Photographers, Voice Coaches, Graduates, Galleries, Venues, Festival Promoters and many more!
