about Creative Talks

Creative Talks will return on 5 June 2015 and continue to run on the first Friday of each month up to, and including, November 2015.


Renew Newcastle, in association with The Lock-Up, is pleased to present Creative Talks, a series of breakfast lectures presented by people who are making a living from their creativity. Hear of their pathway to success, the lessons they have learned (good and bad) and the pearls of wisdom they want to share with you.

This is followed by an audience Q&A and the opportunity to mingle with local creatives from a wide range of backgrounds while scoring a free breakfast of coffee, tea, pastries and fruit.

In 2015 we have introduced a small attendance fee to assist with operating costs.

Subscribe for updates to the Renew Newcastle e-newsletter or like Renew Newcastle on Facebook to be kept in the loop about upcoming talks in 2014.
