We’re coming back together for the first time in a while with an opportunity to learn about different digital community projects taking place in Bristol and with a chance to meet and share connections and opportunities.  

RSA Bristol in partnership with Power to Change and the Engine Shed are bringing this event together to highlight different approaches and ideas around the digital and tech sector that are being innovated here in Bristol.  We’ll have a number of speakers to talk about their work in this area and the opportunity to ask questions and find out more of what is happening in the city.  

  • Fergus Arkley FRSA (Power to Change) talking about exploring the opportunities surrounding community tech, and consider how communities can be strengthened and liberated by creating and owning their own technical solutions.
  • Mellissa Mean – Director of We Can Make (part of Knowle West Media Centre) will be sharing how they are advancing community tech through digital manufacturing and product design in the heart of South Bristol.
  • Diana Finch FRSA, Bristol Pay, whose aim it is to create a social network where people and communities come together to collaborate across our city.  Bristol Pay will also be a non-profit payment platform to raise funds for local projects.  

We’ll close the event with networking and conversation.

As ever, there will also be an opportunity to ask questions and potentially get involved. Everyone is welcome.

Taking part in RSA in-person events 

We've been looking forward to finally being able to meet together in person. But of course recognise it is important for us to stay cautious and make the environment safe for everyone.  

We aim to have assurances from all venues that they will have basic COVID-safety processes in place.

We’re asking all attendees of events to be respectful of personal space, to be mindful of others preferences in regards to social distancing and to respect those that are wearing face coverings.

To participate in the event, you will need to register for a ticket so we can make sure we have an up-to-date list of those who plan on attending. This is for capacity purposes.  

We request that all attendees evaluate their own health and that of those they’re in close contact with. We encourage all attendees that are sick or showing symptoms of illness to stay home and to cancel your Eventbrite ticket if you are no longer able to join the event.  

Given the ever-changing nature of the pandemic, please always check your latest national Government guidance in addition to following our baseline guidance enclosed here. If guidelines do change, the event may be cancelled at short notice.
