Sarah Illustration hosted a vibrant creative networking event on Thursday evening at Mister Miyagi on Bold Street, sponsored by Depop. This fun evening gave a group of scouse Depop women sellers the chance to showcase their work to the public and meet other like-minded creatives.
Sarah asked me to help her plan and organise the event where I also had the chance to have my own stall showcasing my work 🙂 I too have never organised my own public event before, so it was a really fun and exciting opportunity. We are both so happy that a good amount of people turned up and they all seemed to enjoy themselves, with quite a few asking if there will be any more events in future! We are already in discussions about hosting more events so stay tuned ; )
“I’ve never hosted an event before so it has been a huge learning curve in all respects eg. knowing your target audience and the most successful ways to advertise etc. All in all it was a huge success with a nice atmosphere and a great amount of people turned up. I’ve gained friends, followers, the chance to host more events in future and I have a big respect to those who host events full time now I know how much effort goes on behind the scenes.” Sarah Mckevitt, Sarah Illustration
