Hosted by David Brückner & Neta Gracewell

Cards on the Table is a fun, fast paced networking event inspired by card games, designed to help artists connect and form new collaborations.


It’s a specific set up aiming to be focused, succinct and useful for artists to talk through the things that they’re really interested in creating.

How does it work?

On a "date", each participant draws up to 3 cards, writes on them a short sentence to describe their project, and gets 1 minute to pitch it to their partner. At the end of the round, you can take the cards of your date which you thought were interesting. By the end of the event you will potentially have several cards with projects you're interested in.

Of course we’ve got some more game rules to make it even more fun, but these will be explained in the evening itself.
