To start the month, we gathered once again for our Online Family Brunch! Another round of our monthly event exclusive to ECHN members. This is our moment to catch up, share and inspire and we also have the opportunity to hear great stories: just like in good family meetings! Thank you again for all of you who are a part of this beautiful community and make these events so warm and inspiring.
Last Friday, we had the pleasure to have not one but three of the ladies that make Creative Spark (Dundalk, Ireland) an amazing place! Sarah, Jacqui and Grainne took turns to explain us in detail what they have been doing so far and also told us all about their future plans, which include a new space downtown, artistic residencies, exchanges, in sum: a place to work and a place to learn.
