Rising Blog: #CritChat Has Its Pilot Event

On the 23rd of November we held the pilot for our new monthly crit session: Crit Chat. Designed by and for young creatives, the regular sessions will provide a space where young people can bring work for critique, meet like-minded peers, and propose collaborations, all with the support of Rising Arts Agency.

In our inaugural session at Spike Island, the young people decided what they wanted from these evenings, and had a first go at showing and discussing their work! Lots of helpful advice was shared, and some first connections made – success!

We can’t wait to launch Crit Chat properly in the new year, so keep your eyes peeled for more information!

Thank you to JRJ Coleman from Inter:Mission for taking such great photos of the event. Thank you, too, to Fiona Clabon Illustration, Jay Carter-Coles Filmmaker / Producer et al for coming and helping to shape our newest project!
