Ironclad Creative bring Creative Catch-up sessions to Brighton Dome


Are you a performing arts creative looking to connect with industry peers? We have partnered with Ironclad Creative to offer a meeting space for small groups to come together in a socially distanced environment at Brighton Dome from December 2020.

After months of digital meet-ups, Ironclad Creative are bringing monthly in-person Creative Catch-up sessions to Brighton. At the two-hour sessions, artists set the agenda in an informal setting that aims to connect, support and make space for writers, directors, actors, producers and creative people. There will be opportunities to chat, give updates on local and national events and sometimes introduce a guest speaker from the performing arts world. No need to pitch or sell - just be you.

Ironclad Creative was established by the founders of Cast Iron Theatre, a not-for-profit organisation whose mission is to train, mentor and commission aspiring, emerging and professional performing artists. They believe that creative careers should be available to people from all backgrounds.

Kyla Booth-Lucking, Brighton Dome’s Director of Programming and Participation said:

“We’re pleased to be able to offer socially distanced space in our building for artists to talk, share ideas and connect, something that’s vital to the health of the artistic community. We hope this collaboration will unlock potential for our city's artists at a time when the future is hard to predict but the need for art has never been more important.”

The first meeting will take place on Tues 8 Dec from 10.30am but dates may be subject to change following any further lockdown restrictions.

Places are free and limited to 10 people, booking is required in advance here:
