8/1 – How to build your community
How to build your community
Imagine this – you discover a passion for a new hobby and want to find other people who are also passionate about it. What do you do? Do you go to meetup.com and search for groups? Do you scan the neighborhood coffee shop’s bulletin board for things that are at least somewhat related to what you are interested in? Do you join a Reddit group for the hobby and then spend tons of time wishing you could find an in-person group to join as well?
What do we do when we want a community that doesn’t seem to be there? What if we want to build a sense of community at work? What are our options when the things we want don’t already exist?
That’s what this workshop is all about: learning the secrets of community building that create sustainable, engaging, and enjoyable connections between people. Join us for an hour of talking about the ins and outs of taking the thing you care about and building a tribe of like-minded people around it.
This workshop is provided through Venture Cafe – a nonprofit whose mission is to connect innovators together in a space that is authentic, fun and community-minded. When you arrive at 4240 Duncan go upstairs and sign in to the Venture Cafe Kiosk. Grab a beer and come down to the ‘Hattie North’ room (you can ask the greeters at the kiosk where that is). Space is limited to about 15, so make sure to get there on time at 6:30 pm.
