A creative collective for the North of England
About The New Monday
A community initiative that brings together individuals and organisations from creative, digital, TV and film.
We host a FREE breakfast networking and speaker sessions on the first Tuesday of every month (it is The New Monday after all…) Over coffee and croissants, you’ll get insider tips and practical information on emerging production sectors, gain creative inspiration, and open doors to collaboration opportunities.
The New Monday is for creatives: whether that’s composers, artists, producers, game studios, DOPs, commissioners, industry bodies, freelance crew, directors, production companies, talent execs – if you’re based in Leeds, come along and have a good natter!
We like to keep this event informal and open to the floor for audience questions and input. Following our guest speaker Q&A, we invite audience members to take a three-minute slot to share news, challenges, or opportunities, or ask for advice from a friendly group of fellow industry players.
Please note - this isn't a self-promo slot! Come with a story others can learn from, or a creative problem that the Leeds creative network can help you to solve.
