Many thanks to those who came along to the first Artists Against Austerity meeting on Saturday.
There was lots of interesting discussion and positive feedback about taking the project forward.
In terms of next steps there was some reflection on the challenge of putting on a large scale event prior to the general election due to the limited timescale.
We are continuing to look at possibilities for staging a smaller launch event as well as building a network of artists.
To this end a second meeting has been organised for 2 weeks time on Saturday 14 February (in the morning!).
It will be fantastic to have some of those in attendance who could not make it previously. If you would be looking to put on your own art work (existing work or new work) as part of a launch event, or to get involved in a continuing network then please come along and share your ideas.
Details of the next meeting will be sent around shortly.
