AND Arts Network Social

About the event

If you are a creative living in the Ards and North Down area, then this is for you!

Let’s kick off the new AND Arts Network with a fun and relaxed social! Catch up with creative friends and maybe make some new ones over a glass and a chat.

We are excited to be hosting our first event for the AND Arts Network: a new initiative to strengthen the arts across all genres (including visual arts, applied arts, music, literature, drama, lens based media, etc) in the Ards and North Down Borough Council area and give more access to opportunities and collaborations.

Join us to find out more at this informal event.
