The Bournemouth Tech/Web/Creative Community has landed!
I think it’s fair to say, we’ve finally managed to build a tech /web / creative community in and around Bournemouth, wooohooo!
Coming in June Meetdraw X (10) – wow! From its humble beginnings in iBar to the 100+ regular attended quarterly events for all digital / creative animals.
Bar Camp Bournemouth
(Website not updated since #bcbomo3 though…)
3 successful bar camps done… attracting around 100 developers / coders and hackers to the (sunny) south coast for 2 days of self organising talks.
In September there will be an ignite event as part of the Bournemouth business week aka Business on the Beach 2011. 5 min talks on tech / trend and cool things.
Bournemouth Creatives (formerly Bomo Creatives)
This networking / creative lobby type group has recently launched their micro-fund for local arts projects. Brilliant!
Pre-dating meetdraw, this tech get together at local pubs has restarted for 2011 (meeting 18th May in Dorchester)
Aside from these events, how about shared working spaces?
Yeah, we got those too:
For startup creative businesses, based at the Arts University College Bournemouth.
Based in the center of Bournemouth on Richmond hill, with a combination of hotdesk space and startup office space it’s fostered 2 new collaborative ventures I know of this year. (Plus we’re based there so it must be good… if you’d like to visit there’s an open evening on 27th May at 7pm too)
Anything I missed, leave me a comment? (I bet I have…)
