Freelancers Breakfast Club

Project Type: 
LEAN

A regular meet-up for Lewisham's freelancers working in participatory arts, arts learning or education for breakfast, discussion and sharing

At our Breakfast Clubs artists are able to get a hot drink and pastry and chat informally. Following this there is a facilitated discussion where artists (from any art form) can raise questions and discuss pertinent issues. It is also a chance to meet LEAN and The Albany.
