Can we build a sustained network for Bristol that supports innovation, inclusion and investment, helping us shape and make our futures?

This workshop will help enquire into and establish this approach by looking at the potential for developing our contributions and collaboration as individuals, our institutions and employers, and our city region in a way that supports positive change.

Bristol Exchange is a self-organising civic network of intrapreneurs, entrepreneurs, investors and influencers from across Bristol's social, cultural, practitioner and economic communities who are communicating, developing, refining and supporting better skills, practices and products to secure our collective future.

You are invited to join us for a planning workshop (kindly hosted by the independent law firm Burges Salmon) for this initiative which is being set up by Fellows of the RSA, the Schumacher Institute and others in the greater Bristol area. This is our chance to work on the challenges and opportunities that face our city region, our communities and interest groups, as energetic, reflective practitioners, thinkers, innovators and, in various ways, investors.

Come with a generous spirit for our shared future and that of our successors – you can use your experience and ambitions to play your part in making great ideas realisable and "system change" possible. There will be a fab buffet to keep you going, you will probably take away ideas and new ambitions that help you in the coming days and months, and you will certainly meet great people and have fun.

Any questions, please contact Ted Fowler FRSA: [email protected]
