This year we’ve got a fringe programme in the lead up to the main event (for those of you not in the know we mean Creative PIE 2014, which is only two weeks away eeek – book your free place here). PIE fringe promises to be exciting, quirky and alternative, and all events are completely free to creatives based in the West Midlands.
The fringe gets underway on Thursday 30 October at 12.30pm, as independent producer Anne Forgan leads a Survival Trail around several Coventry arts organisations including EGO Performance, Tin Music & Arts and Imagineer Productions, to hear the inside stories of their careers, ambitions and struggles. These encounters will provide starting points for conversations and problem solving, where you can reflect on your own challenges and find like-minded people to share them with. There will be a tasty lunch laid on to prepare you for the trail, so no need to lug your pack-up with you! For more details and to book your free place please click here.
Next up from the guys at Silhouette Press is Creative Crush on Saturday 1 November at The Tin, from 2pm. This event will focus on the publishing and creative writing industries, but with lessons applicable to all artistic trades. As well as providing cake (that’s sold it for us right there), the SP team have lined up an impressive list of speakers including Jess Green and Chris O’Connell. All nicely rounded off by a panel gameshow (with prizes!) and the opportunity to mingle with fellow local creatives. To book or for more info click here.
Last but not least we shift to Birmingham, where creative engagement experts changing cultures are running an evening of food and conversation at the Joint Stock Theatre. This is invitation only, but you might just be the kind of person they’re looking for. Email Nicola Richardson for more info firstname.lastname@example.org
