Thanks to everyone who came to the most recent Who, What, When, Where & Why networking night. This series continues into the New Year as the main activity for ABpositive. We are looking to add a main speaker to some of the evenings who will have 20 minutes or so to chat about one of the bigger issues in the North-east and Scotland. Suggestions of subjects so far have included Funding, City Centre Masterplan, Health & Arts, Cultural plan. What we are looking for now are more suggestions and also suggestions of people who can speak on these subjects.
Here are the links to the main presentations from the last session
Dee Henderson-Haefner and her new business Earth Touch Shiatsu
Stephanie Vandem Portrait Painter who gave an insight into her new show which will be at the Newave Gallery from 13th January
Joanne Randell form KidzAct 2016 talking about the large scale community show happening near Newtonhill Alter:nativity. This is no ordinary nativity play but a chance to reflect on the challenges being faced across the globe. performances on 17th/18th Dec and tickets from www.buytickets.at/mindswideopen
