SNAP Open Network Meeting

We are delighted to be re-launching our Open Meetings following a period where SNAP members have been contributing to exciting developments within the city, including Create Sheffield (Sheffield’s Local Cultural Education Partnership).  We are now ready to re-focus on providing a space for our sector to meet, share and network.      

There will be 3 open meetings a year. They are free to attend but please book your place through Eventbrite:

1st October 4.00 - 6.00 108 The Moor Eventbrite link

7th February 12.00 - 2.00 108 The Moor Eventbrite link

6th June 5.00 - 7.00 108 The Moor Eventbrite link

and as the name suggests meetings are open to anyone who works in or is interested in the field of arts and culture/children and young people.  ALL WELCOME.

We hope these meetings will provide a conduit for sharing information/news/opportunities from within the sector, the city and from Create Sheffield and will strengthen our collective.
