The meetings offer constructive feedback to practicing artists and engage with current concerns in art and culture.
Each event will have a different focus and a guest artist / art professional who will talk driven from their experience; this could be about fundraising, producing, touring, audience development, or the creative process.

The reason behind μoment Creative
The journey from being a student to a young artist, and from there to become a professional arts practitioner entails an ongoing process of research, wander and experimentation. Throughout this journey we often face a range of concerns, challenges and expectations. Essentially, μoment Creative has been developed in order to provide useful tools to artists for the benefit of their subsequent professional career. It explores how we, -art professionals, educators, researchers and artists working in a specific field or discipline-, can enhance our creative practises and potential via blending our personal inspiration and creativity with knowledge and resources coming from others.
μoment Creative (μC) is a mentoring platform in which emerging artists, performing art groups and early career art managers, producers and curators; mentees, during the program are provided with practical assistance, advice and motivation on navigating their own professional development in the arts sector. The aim is to empower creative encounters with artists and creative professionals, foster discussions and raise questions driven by our own artistic practice and personal creativity. At the same time, μC offers training development and business tools to enhance the required confidence and clarity to achieve their career goals in the arts world.
This program essentially puts a context in the capabilities and the broad spectrum of skills the artists already have.
