Zoom. 7-8.30pm. Free. Come any time and stay as long as you like.
Numbers are limited to 30 people, please register for a place in advance. You may wish to downlaod Zoom before the event for ease of joining on the evening.
Care Café is a place for people to gather their wits, thoughts and comrades in action.
We are all trying to figure out how to breathe through this present moment, how to take care of ourselves and others, and find ways to keep connected to each other.
Originally planned to take place on a monthly basis in Artsadmin’s Arts Bar & Café, we are experimenting with offering a digital space through Zoom where we can commune with others and share feelings of togetherness and hope in these uncertain times.
There will be no specific agenda or discussion topic, and no pressure to do, be, or say anything, just turn up. There will be an option to simply hang out at the ‘bar’, or break out into smaller groups or one-to-one conversations.
Please bring something to scribble on, be that a notebook, scrap paper, the back of an envelope or a napkin, and something to make a mark with - a pencil, a pen, some colouring crayons. There will be no specific writing or drawing task, but we invite you to have these to hand and join in some gentle activity as others do the same.
An email will be sent ahead of the event with further details of how to log on to the Care Café and a menu for the evening.
Please let us know if you have access requirements ahead of time by emailing email@example.com.
