I really love attending these meetings when my life/work/family schedule allows.   Part information, part entertainment and part support group.


The Northside Hub blog recently said this: 

It’s heartening to see people from the arts and creative communities getting involved with networking too, asaside from the obvious benefits of connections, advice, profile raising, finding out new information and increasing your confidence, there’s also an escape from the solitude that plagues artists, writers and creators. Nothing beats that human connection - not even burying your head in your phone or going on a Netflix binge!

And these days, networking is more necessary than ever. It’s not just for the job hunters anymore, but an essential tool in our current environment where employment and industries can be temporary and/or uncertain, so it’s good to keep up with the latest opportunities, contacts, apps, venues, grants and so forth.

Thanks for organising these Bruno. I had a great time last week. See you and everyone else at the next one!


Had an absolute blast! Thank you:)


I really enjoyed my first CDNB and look forward to the next. Thank you so much for coordinating and promoting this. I have revived my Instagram account and bought a new journal at Kmart on my way to work after leaving yesterday morning, and feel positively inspired!!!
