Guild Coffeehouse - opening 11am, Wed 29th April 2020

Here at the Guild of Media Arts we, probably like you, have had to learn to work in a completely different way. Working online from a room at home is all very well, but quite apart from keeping business ticking over, the challenges of working at a distance from colleagues are many. One of them is the danger of getting out of touch when you cannot just meet up for a coffee and a chat.

Also, they say that you need a break from the screen every now and then, so here, just for you, is the Guild's virtual coffeehouse. This will open its doors for about an hour every Wednesday at 11am.

The Coffeehouse is for you to share whatever topics you wish. Bring a mug of coffee with you if you wish, but it's not compulsory, and stay as long as you like!

From time to time we will ask a guest to drop in. To get things going we have asked Hari Prabu, Policy and Public Affairs Manager at the Creative Industries Federation, to drop in to the Coffeehouse when we open up next Wednesday 29 April.

Hari is the person who crunched all that survey data that you and thousands of other creative workers sent to the CIF, and which led to changes to the Government's approach to support for our sector.

We are looking forward to hearing more from Hari on how he thinks the creative sector can adjust and hopefully thrive when the immediate crisis passes.

Thanks to our Master Olivia Chatten, at Phase One, University of York for providing the Zoom room.

See you there!
