Design MCR - Pandemic Stations! WTF Do We Do Now?

Dates: 12 Nov 2020 - 12 Nov 2020

Location: Virtual

It’s got to be said, 2020 has basically ripped apart the hopes and dreams of those who work in the arts. Anything we originally intended to be an artistic pursuit has been brutally torn in pieces. For the majority of us we feel so low that nothing could bring us out of this mire. 
Thankfully, help has been provided in the form of an online event. The first of a quarterly series of events called the Scale-up Sessions (SUS) for start-ups, microbusinesses and SME takes place this Thursday 12th November 2020 between the hour of 6pm - 7pm. 
In association with Design Manchester and in partnership with the Business & IP Centre at Manchester Central Library presents to you ‘Pandemic Stations! WTF Do We Do Now?’
This engaging hour will feature the following:-
  • Interviews and discussions with experts
  • Business mentors and start-up entrepreneurs
  • Opportunities for live and online questions.
It will be introduced by Kasper de Graaf, Design Manchester and will include an in-depth interview with Lou Cordwell OBE, Co-Chair of Greater Manchester Local Enterprise Partnership and Chair of Design Manchester. The hour will conclude with a panel discussion and Q+A.
The chair and panel are made up of the following people:-
  • Katy Cowan, Founder and Editor of Creative Boom


  • Jill Adam, Louder Than Words

  • Debra King, Brighter Sound
  • Ed Matthews-Gentle, Creative Lancashire
