Starting something new and exciting such as an arts initiative means there is plenty of discussion- For The Arts Menagerie, there was a lot to talk about on a cold and wintery evening at Malt Bar. Who are we? What are we about? What do we want to do? Looking around the table you could see that these talented artists were enthusiastic to be dynamic and creative, with opportunities to exhibit and connect with their peers, as well as each other, something that is not always easily attainable. The meeting opened up discussions of future projects and desires - a triumphant start to a first meeting!
