Join us at RSA Engage in Newcastle to spark new conversations, meet local Fellows, and discover ideas that have the potential to become a powerful source for social change.
In 1754, William Shipley founded the RSA with a belief that the creativity of ideas could enrich social progress. We’ve taken inspiration and developed a series of events to encourage, celebrate and support our Fellowship community to turn their ideas into action.
A mix of projects will be pitched, and will be followed by an opportunity for you to ask questions, find out more from the people driving these ideas forward, and volunteer your support.
Please register a free ticket in advance. Drinks will be available on arrival.
Please note that this is a dynamic event structure and some parts are standing networking. If you have any questions, access requirements or require any reasonable adjustments, please contact Jessica McMorrow: [email protected]. Please also let us know if you have any dietary requirements, or severe allergies.

What is RSA Engage?
RSA Engage is a series of 20 events hosted around the UK which provide a space for Fellows to make new connections in their area and enables us to showcase some of the most innovative Fellow-led projects that are having a positive impact. Whether you’re looking to find out more about the RSA, get involved with an exciting project, or to network with like-minded people, RSA Engage offers something for everyone.
What’s the format?
RSA Engage is a mix of three minute project pitches and facilitated networking. Each pitch will finish with a call to action, asking the audience to share their skills and experience to help further their project. In between project pitches, there are short bursts of networking where you’ll be able to spark new connections and talk to the project pitchers about how you can support their work. RSA Engage is an interactive, standing event, though limited seating may be available.
Who can attend?
Our Fellowship events are free to attend, but due to their popularity we ask that you please register in advance by following the ‘book now’ link at the top of this page. We welcome non-Fellows who support the work of the RSA and those who are interested in finding out more about Fellowship.
Location: Ampersand Inventions (Fourth Floor), Commercial Union House, 39 Pilgrim Street, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 6QE.
