Some of the Beat Carnival Artist team hard at work brainstorming plans for the future

It was great to have many of our talented artists attend our artist forum meeting on Thursday 18th December.

It's been a while since we held the previous one, due to a heavy work load! 

Having so many creative thinkers in one room planning the future is very exciting.

We also had time for a few mince pies and tiny wee sausages!
