#Community Meetup: Open Mic Night & Meet Your Escape Allies
Wednesday, 1 October 2014 from 19:00 to 21:00 (BST)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Each week, we invite members of the community to share their Escape stories with the rest of the broader Escape the City tribe.
These 10-minute open mic sessions talk about the journey of finding work that matters and about the realities of making big life changes - whether it's changing your job, starting a business, or going on a big adventure.
This is followed by a facilitated session where you get to chat with like-minded people from the Escape community.
These evenings are held at the Escape School in Bank (150 metres from the Bank of England) each week and are an opportunity to meet some new people, hear some inspiring stories, and connect with the rest of the Escape tribe.
Want to speak?
If you have a story you'd like to share with the community, please fill this in to apply for your spot.
What others have said
"I work in a corporate environment, but I'm not a 'city' type, so I anticipated there to be a lot more of that. The feeling in the room was so positive and supportive, and none of the people there were the power-banker/finance 'city' types that I expected. Staying back and having a chat with one of the other attendees, I had a really strong desire to surround myself more with other people who are wanting to change their lives just like I am. I bought the ticket to that event on a whim and I got so much more than my money's worth, which is why I'm so thankful and why I wanted to be candid with you about my experience."
"There is always something to learn at Escape and it's such a wonderful, energising place to be, which gives you so many chances to talk to so many wonderfully interesting people."
