Capturing authentic moments

Creatives Group

10 May 2018

At this Creatives Group event, we looked at this topic from the perspective of both planned and opportune moments, considering the creative and practical approach to each.

We explored different approaches to content collection, how to plan for spontaneity, and what resources and mechanisms you need in place to capture these authentic moments.

About the Creatives Group

This networking group is for professionals working in in-house creative teams (of one or more people) within UK charities and not-for-profits. It’s a gathering of creative leads, editors, publications managers, designers, production folk, content producers and more.

The group meets three times a year to focus on a common challenge. The format of the meetings is one or two presentations on a specific topic, followed by small group discussions, providing a combination of best practice and peer-to-peer sharing.

The events give you the chance to meet your peers, compare notes on workplace practices and share successes, ideas, challenges and inspiration. The group is designed to encourage networking and peer to peer support, sharing issues in a ‘safe’ environment.

If you’d like to be one of the first to hear about these events, please email Sarah Cutress to be added to the mailing list.

If you’re interested in presenting at a future event or joining the steering group, please contact Vanessa Weddell.
