Massive hat tip to Janet Smith of Croydon Arts Show, which will soon be transitioning from radio to podcast. @croydonartsshow on Twitter, stay tuned.

Thanks to all who attended, brainstormed, and googled!

Artists, please add yourselves to the comments of this report - and connect with the folks from this D&D Satellite who were talking about connecting up the various networks of artists in Croydon. Search for the ‘Creating a Network’ session which Sarah called.
