Saturday, April 28, 2012 from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM (BST)
Birmingham, United Kingdom
The #TAL12 Unconference is a joint event from Talk About Local and online community noticeboard n0tice. It is on Saturday 28th April in central Birmingham at Maple House, which is only a few minutes walk from the railway station and is fully accessible.
This will be the fourth unconference for Talk About Local, following the successful #TAL09 in Stoke-on-Trent, #TAL10 in Leeds and #TAL11 in Cardiff. We’re hoping #TAL12 will be another well-attended, action-packed and thought-provoking meeting of the locally minded – be you a hyperlocal blogger, community activist or reporter, local government employee or n0tice community member!
As this is an unconference style event, there is no set agenda for the day – attendees will decide the programme at the beginning, so what’s discussed and produced over the course of the day is up to you!
The #TAL12 team will be at the venue from 9.00am for pelple to get signed in and the event starts at 10.00am. If you have any special dietary requirements please let us know when you book your ticket.
