February Events Digest 2020

Makers and Shakers Public Holiday Mugs

Our February Events Digest 2020 is all about APPLICATIONS!

Design markets across the country are seeking the very best creative talent to fill those much-coveted stall spaces for their 2020 events. 

To make things simpler for makers, we’ve slightly adjusted our digest layout and separated applications from events for prompt location of what matters most.

As always, a full calendar of events and opportunities is published on our website for your convenience right here.  We’ve been delighted to hear this has become a go-to resource for our mentees when planning their year of market participation.

If that isn’t enough to meet your organisational needs, why not check out our brand new Make Good Things Happen ACTION Planner.  It’s FREE to download and a fantastic way to map out your year of activities in advance to provide you with focus on what’s required week-to-week to make it happen.

Read our February Events Digest 2020 below to get the low-down on opportunities and events currently available to Australian creative and makers.
