Reliably informed

When I saw that the focus of this event was community, I immediately went to Google to search for a famous quote from a historical figure who stressed its importance. After ten minutes of searching I was disappointed to see that not one important person (that I could find using the power of the world wide web) said what I was hoping to find. If I had to try and summarise the strength of solidarity in a quote it would go something like this – “Community is magnification of one’s strengths through collective might and a dilution of fear and weakness through support.”

With our opening quote sorted, Sad Social is a free event, ran by Sad For Life Records with community in mind. An afternoon of networking and socialising in Middlesbrough’s hippest art space, Pineapple Black (so you can check out a bit of art as you mingle). The event offers a platform to those involved or interested in the creative community to meet each other in the hope that knowledge can be shared and opportunities created. 

So whether you are a rookie of the music scene or an industry pro, a performer or a documenter, bring your work and an open hand ready to reach out to like minded individuals. Then reap the creative rewards of your newly formed community.

Sad Social kicks off at 1pm on Sunday 25th August at Pineapple Black.
