Macc ‘n Chat
Twentysevenb Studios, Macclesfield
Thursday 14 July 2022, 6-7:30pm

Macc ‘n Chat is an open forum event for professional* artists and creatives from Macclesfield and the surrounding towns/villages to share your ideas, ambitions and wishes for future creative activities. Led by curator and mentor Mark Devereux, this new pilot event will directly influence Mark Devereux Projects’ future programming in the region.

Hosted at Twentysevenb Studios, you will be invited to take part in a series of creative activities alongside an open group discussion to highlight how Mark Devereux Projects may be able to support your creative practices. A complimentary light evening meal (dahl & bread) will be provided along with refreshments. Donations are welcomed towards refreshments.

Following this event and dependent on appetite (!) we hope to continue Macc ‘n Chat as an ongoing event, bringing creatives in the region together.

Mark Devereux Projects is a curatorial and artist development organisation based in Rainow, Macclesfield. Macc ‘n Chat is supported by Arts Council England, Cheshire East Council and Twentysevenb Studios.

* We identify professional artists and creatives as individuals who are committed to developing their artistic work and practices. You do not need to be practicing in a full time capacity.
