South East virtual coffeehouse 2024 - RSA

South East virtual coffeehouse 2024

Fellowship events

 -  | BST British Summer Time


  • Community and place-based action
  • Social innovation

Every month, join us online over a Friday lunchtime to discover changemakers from across the South East region, be inspired and learn from each other. 

Echoing the RSA’s origin as an enlightenment coffeehouse over 250 years ago, our regular South East Coffeehouse series offers an interactive space to share, spark and develop ideas for social change.  

Each Friday, we feature one South East changemaker, giving them the floor to share their work or facilitate a discussion. We invite you to connect with local changemakers, be inspired by innovative Fellow-led projects, share insights and learn from each other. 

The themes and conversations vary month-to-month, fostering unique conversations in each session. So come along, and start your weekend with a spark of inspiration!  

19th July: Virtual Speed Networking

This virtual Coffeehouse we'll kick off with virtual speed networking, and then spotlight a few Fellow-led projects across the region. This is also a chance to chat to your South East Area Manager, Rachel Grice. Hope to see you there.
