'Arty' networking breakfast in London

Minister for Culture, John Cortes, hosted a networking meeting at Gibraltar House in London bringing together creatives and other professionals working in the arts and cultural industries in London. The event, organised by Gibraltar Cultural Services with the support of Gibraltar House, generated conversation and discussion with possible collaborations being explored and ideas exchanged. The morning even resulted in an impromptu poetry performance by Jonathan Teuma who felt inspired by the occasion – and inspired all present.

The main purpose of the event was to keep contact with and between Gibraltarians working in the Arts outside Gibraltar, encouraging their networking and exchanging of ideas and possibly developing collaborative projects.

Minister John Cortes commented: “It was wonderful to see all these artists, based outside Gibraltar, together with some of the visiting artists from Gibraltar, all together, talking about their work and howtheycanpromoteknowledgeofGibraltaranditsidentitythroughtheArts. Itwasinspirational and emotional at the same time. I am convinced that many positive things will come from this initiative”.
