CHAOS Network - 27/9, 10am @ Yours!

Hi everyone,

Welcome to the September CHAOS newsletter!

Thank you to everyone who got in touch to share their events and opportunities.
A reminder that our next virtual get together is Monday 27th September at 10am. Here's the Zoom link.

It's the usual informal CHAOS set up this month so it's all about having a chat, catching up and sharing what we've all be up to.

Here's the dates for the next couple meetings for you to put in your diary.
There is a very real possibility that we'll be able to do these (or at least some of them) IN PERSON, we'll let you know nearer the time.
Monday 25th October - 6pm
Monday 29th November - 10am

News on the CHAOS Not-Conference - we were sad to have to postpone the CHAOS Not-Conference this month. We're are still hoping to bring everyone together later this year and will let you know as soon as a new date is confirmed.

Now it's time to take a look below to the brilliant things going on in the City over the next few weeks, including talks, workshops and opportunities to get involved.

If you didn't already know... What is CHAOS?: The CHAOS Network aims to bring together the Creatives, Heritage and Arts Of Southampton. Whether you are a creative business, a voluntary arts group or an independent artist, we'd love to see you at the next network meeting, everyone is welcome to discuss all things cultural in the city. Bring your news and events, do some networking and have a coffee with us (virtually!).

Take care,
Becky Honeycombe-Foster
CHAOS Coordinator
