Space4 Launch Tomorrow

Reminder This Thursday 5pm-9pm, Cooperative Technology Space Launch London

If you have any flyers of your respective organisations please bring them along

Don’t forget that we’re launching our new digital cooperative incubator and events space this Thursday. The drinks are ordered, the speakers are prepped and the bunting’s going up.

Space4 brings together organisations and individuals exploring how more equal models of ownership and control can employ technology for the benefit of us all.

When? October 26th from 5pm - 9pm (more socialising after)
Where? Space4, 1st Floor, 149 Fonthill Road, London, N4 3HF

The project is spearheaded by web-development co-operative Outlandish and the wider CoTech membership.

Read more about why we’ve set up a physical space to support our movement. You’ll also find a press release attached to this email.

The launch will take place from 5pm - 9pm at Space4. From 6.30-7.30pm there will be a series of rapid talks challenging the existing economic status quo and celebrating digital projects that create inspiring online tools to do this. Speakers include:

Ed Mayo, Secretary General of Co-operatives UK
Alice Casey, Senior Development Manager at NESTA
Ali Torabi, Digital Campaigner at the TUC
Cllr Asima Shaikh, Executive Member for Economic Development & Councillor for Finsbury Park Ward

We’ll also have some VR headsets set up for people to try out, with a programme of applications curated by Animorph.

Outlandish will be decamping to The WB Yeats, our local pub for more informal chats later into the night.

If you’ve not already, please RSVP by reserving your free ticket here. You may also optionally sponsor the event.

All the best,

Would love to be at the launch, sorry we can’t make it, really hope it goes well and say hi to Eric Lee from Webarchitects — we were helping him with RSS and JavsScript news syndication almost 20 years ago! :slight_smile:

I should be popping along to this after work tomorrow, very exciting stuff! I look forward to seeing those of you attending tomorrow!
