Firkin Crane’s March 2021 Town Hall (online) Meeting

Firkin Crane’s March 2021 Town Hall (online) Meeting
Friday 5th March 12.30pm – 2.30pm

We invite Dance Professionals, Dance and Movement Artists as well as Theatre Members and Community Members to join us for March’s Town Hall Meeting.

Let’s take this time of disconnect to make connections, to become more than just a face on a computer screen. Show us what you are about, let us get to know you and what it is you do, what you stand for and what drives you. Use this opportunity to network, to make the connections before you need them. People work with people, and great things can come from informal conversations!
