hfaal-extCREATe’s first All Hands meeting took place in Glasgow on September 15th and 16th 2014. The venue was the Charles Rennie Mackintosh designed House for An Art Lover. The event, principally aimed at CREATe consortium members and associated projects, provided an opportunity to internally showcase our collective efforts, with some invited external inputs and perspectives. It proved to be enlightening, interesting, and fun.

For twitter users, the event’s hashtag was #CAH2014.
