Next: 26 February 10-11:30am

Informal meet up for artists, freelancers and cultural workers, held on 26th of every month.

Due to recent events we can’t get together in person, so instead we’re taking The Breakfast Club online. Join us on Friday 26 February from 10am. Like the physical meet up, you can drop in at anytime until 11:30am and stay for as little or as long as you like. You can even stay in your PJs!

The Breakfast Club is for cultural workers from across the North East and beyond. It’s not just for freelancers, but for anyone from the arts, cultural or heritage sector who wants a break from the ‘normal’ working routine.

Make yourself some Brekkie and start the day with some inspiring chats with fellow artists and meet some of the other people out there, often struggling with similar challenges.

We’re a welcoming and friendly group, so don’t be shy. There’s usually a few new people and a few regulars at each meet up. Share your passions, your frustrations and get inspired over a croissant and some coffee.

The Breakfast Club is on 26th of each month and normally takes place at a different local independent cafe or venue in Newcastle or Gateshead. However, due to Covid-19, we’re currently meeting up online, providing a digital space for artists to come together and catch up over some Brekkie.
