Part of Creative Lives' #CreativeNetwork series of open conversations, this is a monthly event inviting everyone in the BIPOC* community to share stories and ideas and to get support. 

This group will meet online once a month. Each meeting will have a theme to help the discussion. All meetings will have a BIPOC facilitator from Coaching for Creatives and Phoenix Archer, who is the Scotland Community Engagement Officer at Creative Lives. The online meetings will be on Zoom on the last Friday of every month 6pm-7pm.

It's for BIPOC Community Led Creatives in Scotland (BIPOC Creatives only, anyone who isn’t a BIPOC creative but supports BIPOC creatives then please get in touch with us first as we want this to be a safe and supportive space for BIPOC Creatives).

First meeting will be on Friday 30 September from 6pm to 7pm and the theme will be: Black History Month and Remembering Those Before Us

We'll be discussing this theme from various perspective, starting from these questions:

  • Is there still a need for Black History Month?
  • Should we change how we celebrate and respect those who have done amazing work in BIPOC communities?


Future themes:

  • October 2022 - Collaborative Creativity
  • November 2022 - Preparing Your Career
  • December 2022 - New Beginnings
  • January 2023 - Intersectionality

*BIPOC stands for Black, Indigenous, and people of colour
