About the Event

Have you got a research or project idea? Are you thinking about applying for funding? Dr. Jess Moriarty is here to help you take the first steps on your journey.

On the 19th July, Lapidus International will be running our first Creative Café – facilitated by Dr. Jess Moriarty.

Do you have an idea for a practice or research project linked to writing for wellbeing that could lead to funding? Well, why not pitch it to fellow Lapidus members at our Creativity Café?

During the session, you will have the opportunity to get feedback on your idea and maybe even begin to identify some collaborators or mentors to help further build upon it. You can also support other Lapidus members by sharing your own expertise to help move their ideas forward as well.

Bring your ‘elevator pitch’ idea (2 – 5 mins presentation time) to the meeting and show us what you’ve got!
