RSA South West Engage

Fellowship Event

 -  | GMT Standard Time

Engine Shed, Bristol, BS1 6QH

  • Community engagement
  • Fellowship in Action
  • Social innovation

In 1754, William Shipley founded the RSA with a belief that the creative ideas could enrich social progress. Over 250 years later, we continue to support innovators that create impact.

Join us on Monday 5 December to hear about projects led by Fellows in the South West. A mix of projects will be presented as a series of short 'lightning talks', followed by an opportunity for you to meet the presenters, learn more, or offer your support. Find out more about the format in this short video.

This event will be a particularly good opportunity for new Fellows to find out about all that is happening locally, as well as the opportunities to get involved and help shape our programme in the South West for 2023.

To hear from a range of local Fellows and participate in discussions, please book your place.

To apply to pitch, please complete this form by 12 noon on Monday 14 November.

We look forward to seeing you there!

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 regard 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. 

If you have any questions, or to let us know of any access requirements or reasonable adjustments you require, please email: [email protected]
