The talk about local team are busy getting well underway with the West Midlands pilot of the project, and as part of that we’re holding a couple of social media surgery style sessions over the next couple of weeks, to help people from local communities and groups set up and develop effective community websites.
The first is this Wednesday 14th October in Burton-upon-Trent at Trent & Dove Housing’s offices, 10.00am-1.00pm. The session has been arranged via Community Action & Support – East Staffordshire (CASES).
The second is a lot closer to home at Stanhope Hall, Ketley Croft, Highgate, Birmingham B12 (map here) next Monday 19th October at 10.00am-12.00pm. With talk about local land being just ten minutes away in Digbeth, we were keen to do something in Highgate and Sandra and Lee at Friction Arts were kind enough to put us in touch with the community centre’s womens’ group, who are enthusiastic about creating an online voice for the area. They are open to others’ input so come along if you’d like to contribute!
Both sessions are open and completely free, so if you’re nearby and would like to learn how to set up a community website, or perhaps need help with a site you already have, please come along and meet the talk about local team.
Away from Talk About Local I take photos, fly my quadcopter and walk my two Beagles.
If I'm not doing any of the above then you'll find me volunteering at my local RNLI station as a press officer.
