Project Night

Do you make art or produce projects in community contexts?

Project Night is a meet-up offering a supportive network to creatives and artists working in and with communities. It is a space to share ideas, test things out, meet new people and be inspired.

At each event there is time for individuals or groups to test out project ideas and get supportive feedback, as well as plenty of informal time for conversations. As always we are open for the event to evolve and become what people want and need it to be.

In response to the coronavirus outbreak, we aren’t able to meet in-person at the moment.  However, as creatives and artists have told us they’re keen to meet virtually more regularly, we are offering a virtual Project Night every fortnight beginning on Thursday 16 April. Keep an eye on the events page for more information and sign up to our e-bulletin to get a monthly update.

When we meet physically for Project Night we provide drinks and people are invited to bring a dish so that we can spend time enjoying food together and talking around the table. For virtual sessions it is BYO (Bring Your Own)!

Previous Project Nights

After the first event on 4 July 2019 people who came along said:

‘a really great space was created for supporting each other and sparking new ideas / collaborations’

‘this has been amazing. I’m potentially going to work with someone that I wouldn’t have ever had the opportunity to meet unless it was for this night’

Our second event at the end of September 2019 was equally great, with a full house of people discussing a wide range of projects; from music making to caravan performances! November 2019 was a lovely intimate session with inspiring discussions around poetry groups, walking projects and more.

January 2020 was full of fresh new year energy and our March 2020 session was the first virtual experiment. We were inspired by everyone’s generosity and heard about two brilliant new projects: Knowle West Beaches – creating sandcastles around the Knowle West neighbourhood – and a new project exploring how coronavirus and COVID-19 are affecting different types of work and workers.

Project Nights are currently happening virtually every fortnight starting from Thursday April 16th – with a different theme and guest each time. For more info and to book on visit the event listings page.
