We’ve had to postpone the topic of creativity until later in the year, when there will be more information available about progress and next steps. However, we’d like to take the opportunity of the New Year to get together and plan ahead for upcoming challenges and opportunities. So, the agenda for the Network Meeting on Thursday 28 January 2016 meeting will now comprise:
Time – Start 10am, finish 12 noon with lunch and further networking.
Venue – Roseangle Arts Café, Perth Road, Dundee
