RSA Cornwall: 'Community'

Fellowship Event


The Fish Factory Art Space, Penryn

  • Fellowship
  • Fellowship in Action

Join us for an evening of local speakers on the theme of ‘Community’ with ample opportunity to discuss your ideas and hopes for your local community, and learn more about Blank Slate, a new RSA event for Cornwall taking place on September 19, 2020.

How can digital technology bring people together and facilitate positive change in the real world?

How can hosting your own community radio show benefit your mental health?

How can a local artistic community benefit from the creation of a shared space? 

If you want the answers to these questions, come along and listen to a series of short talks before taking part in group discussions with our speakers, RSA Fellows and others with an interest in Cornwall’s future. Following the serious business, there will be an opportunity to discuss your ideas in a more informal manner.
