Winter Arts Networking Nights with Arts OutWest

Arts OutWest’s Winter Arts Networking Nights are social events for the whole arts and creative community. A chance to meet, mingle, introduce yourself, make contacts and maybe even kick start future collaborations. They are also powered by our creative presentations, where at each night creative people will make short sharp presentations about what they do, their ideas or their work.

An invitation to share your creative story in a fast, fun format

We’re looking for people (or groups) to bravely step up and share their creative stories at one of the nights, using the 20×20 format.

How does 20×20 work?

20×20 is a simple presentation format where you show 20 images, each for 20 seconds. The images, projected onto a screen, advance automatically and you talk along to them. Each presentation is only 6 minutes and 40 seconds in total.

 What do I talk about?

We’d love to hear from creative people from across all art forms, mediums and perspectives: design, art, music, theatre, technology, film, architecture, community projects, creative ideas, education – you name it. Maybe it’s the big story about what you do, or a detailed look at what you’re doing right now, a moment or project you are really proud of, or anything else about your creative perspective, influences, dreams and plans. Inspire us!
