Thursday 10th January 2019: 6pm – 9pm
New for 2019 – Metal have decided to shake up Future Network – our regular networking evening for creative people working in any artistic discipline – and try a new format.
We are inviting guest artists to curate and host a pub style ‘art quiz’, putting their spin on the night, deciding the rounds and themes of the evening; still with a chance to meet other creatives and hear about up coming opportunities.
Each evening will include an invited guest host, plus our regular 10 x 3 Minute Wonder open mic spots – open to any artist, designer, performer or other creative who would like to talk about their work, practice or current projects. If this sounds like you and you would like to book your slot, please email us via firstname.lastname@example.org
To kick off the New Year and our new format – award winning poet and spoken word artist Mark Grist will be your very own host. For his quiz, GET OFF YOUR ARTS!
Poet and performer Mark Grist, used to be a secondary school English teacher, lots of his work is designed for teenagers/young adults/teachers/children. Over the past ten years Mark has won countless slams, titles and awards for his work, (along with two International Webby Awards) and has clocked up millions of views for both his poetry and rap battles online. Recent commissions include work for The Royal Institute, Channel 4, Film4, Red Bull and Google. He also recently fronted Redbull’s documentary series ‘Mark Grist battles the World,’ which involved Mark exploring hip hop culture across The Philippines. www.markgrist.com
We will be doing all sorts of unusual activities for you to get to know one another and you will be allocated a team when you arrive.
