CAN Annual General Meeting

All welcome! With guest Korrin Barrett

Date: Oct 12 – Oct 12Space: Workshop

Join us for the CAN Annual General Meeting, at 5.30pm on Tuesday 12 October 2021.

All welcome and light refreshments will be served.

The AGM will be slightly different this year; we have invited motivational guest speaker Korrin Barrett to give a presentation on the importance of resilience – a subject close to our hearts in the creative sector as we ride the rocky waves post-Covid and negotiate a ‘new normal’.

In 2012, while living in Australia, Korrin Barrett was rushed into hospital after mismanagement of a medical condition lead to emergency surgery and admission to the intensive care unit for an undetected bowel perforation.
This vivacious, fit and healthy 33-year-old, with everything to live for, was put into an induced coma and given a 5% chance of survival! Sepsis and multiple organ failure lead to an induced coma. Nine days later, when Korrin miraculously awoke from the coma, she received the devastating news that to save her life, both her legs and hands would have to be amputated.

Come by to hear the rest of Korrin’s incredible story at our AGM.
