Future Network

Home > Projects > Future Network

At each of our Metal sites, we run regular free networking and sharing evenings for creatives at all levels of their careers.

Artists working in all disciplines are welcome to drop by. If there’s a particular topic you’d like us to cover or an inspiring speaker you’d like us to invite, we’d love to hear your suggestions!

The format varies across our sites, but tends to be something like this…

7.30pm – 8pm: Invited guest speaker, artist or performer, sometimes with an opportunity for Q&A or book signings.
8pm – 8.30pm: ‘Open mic’ style spots for artists to share ideas, performances, readings, artist talks, call-outs for collaborators….anything goes, and we often enjoy a few surprises.
8.30pm: Invited guest performer or workshop leader.
9pm – 10pm: Networking, music and drinks.
