• Assembly 2023 opening event


Artist Winter Social

Thursday 30 November 18:00 — 20:00

Calling all artists and creatives from Sandwell and the Black Country!

This event is free and is open to all artists, creatives and those working in all areas of the arts and the creative industries. Pre-booking is required. 

You are invited to join Multistory at the scenic Lightwoods House for a relaxed evening of speed mate-ing* with like-minded creatives from across the region. (*What is speed-mating? It is also known as networking!).

The Winter Social is an opportunity to meet new people in your community. Come together with other creative professionals, share and develop new connections. Introduce yourself to the Multistory team and find out more about the BCN artist development programme. Hang out! Eat! Drink!

Arrive at 6pm to get settled in, grab yourself a drink, or dive straight in with our guided ice breaker. If you are worried about arriving by yourself or not knowing anyone, the majority of people attending our events arrive alone, and members of the Multistory team (Jess and Rene) will be on hand to support you with any nerves. 

There will be an optional art materials / book swap as part of the social. Clearing out your desk, book pile or toolbox? Bring an art material / book you aren’t using anymore and swap it with another artist.

Details: Light refreshments will be provided, these will be vegetarian and halal. Drinks can be purchased at the bar.

Access: The event will take place in a ground floor space with wheelchair access. Hand sanitiser and face masks will be available. If you have any access requirements you would like us to be aware of, please get in touch with us asap.
