Do Something!


Do Something

These creative jams / production sessions are assembled with the intention of putting artists into motion. Often we are so inundated with ideas that before we can act on them, they either balloon out of proportion or they are replaced with even more exciting ones. The ‘DO SOMETHING’ jams are a chance to focus on one idea and see it through to a DONE. A practical application of inspiration. More info via the Do Something page. Enquiries via the contact page.
