What is RSA Ideas?
RSA Ideas events are a space for Fellows to share their ideas and early-stage projects with others in an open, collaborative, and creative environment. RSA Ideas is designed for groups of up to 40 people to ensure everyone attending is able to participate fully and contribute to the event. Drawing on the expertise of our network, RSA Ideas helps people shape their ideas and turn them into a reality.
What’s the format?
RSA Ideas is an informal event but is well structured and packs a lot in to one session. The online iteration of this event will feature breakout rooms following on from pitches, plenary discussion, and presentations from pitchers. Each pitch lasts three minutes and is followed by a further three minutes for audience members to ask questions, make suggestions, or challenge the pitcher's thinking. As time is limited, participants can also share their thoughts/ideas in the chat function on Zoom, the online platform used for this event.
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. You can only book one ticket at a time so if you would like to invite a guest, please send them this link and ask them to sign up.
