Our 3rd meet up is taking place this week on Wednesday 21st June 6:30-8:30pm at Art Hub Studios, 5-9 Creekside, SE8 4SA
Tickets at – themakersbookclub3.eventbrite.com
We will be discussing the fascinating book by Peter Korn called ‘Why we make things, and Why it matters’. It has been an immersive and thought provoking read, helping me as a self-employed creative to take stock and think about what it is that I do and why I am doing it. I have certainly had to dig a little deeper.
However it was one of the longer more complicated books that we’ve chosen so far and members are not expected to have either finished the book OR even read the book at all. As this is never obligatory to coming to a meet-up as we all have very busy lives, especially when we are running our own business 24/7 !! The idea is that it will help to lead our discussions into thought provoking topics about our creative working lives, and finding time to discuss any other topics that members wish to talk about, keeping the evening informal and friendly… Hope to see you there!!
