Launchgrad goes online!

Hello all,

Just to let you know that we’re going to move all Launchgrad events wholly online to support with as many people as possible being able to still access and engage in creative enterprise activities during these challenging times.

Enterprise Thursdays

Enterprise Thursdays will still run, but instead of meeting in the library at CRC, these will be able to be accessed by as a live video-chat session (details to follow) which I’ll facilitate online.

There will also be ongoing activities using online pinboards and discussion forums.

Secret Writing Society

April is National Poetry Writing Month, so I’ll be extending Secret Writing Society with a challenge to ‘write a poem a day’ throughout April.

Other Events and Opportunities

Many external events have been postponed, in line with government advice – I have updated information where possible, but please always check directly with the organiser to find out if any event you are thinking of attending is going ahead.

Digital creative prompts and opportunities

Launchgrad will be using social media to flag up interesting digital opportunities and creative challenges – particularly useful if you’re in self-isolation but want to keep networking and creating.

Graduates in Residence

Thanks to all those applying for our pilot Graduates in Residence scheme. The deadline has now closed and we’ll be looking carefully at the applications in the next couple of weeks.
