The next event is Thursday 20th August. It will be held at Mink Bar in Middlesbrough and you are invited to join us from 6:30pm.
The event will be chock-full of pizza, pints, and the relaxed networking and hobnobbing that you've come to expect as well as three fantastic talks...
Lyndsie Barker - Mindfulness: Finding your focus
In our ever more technologically dependent, connected world we've become easily distracted by the very tools that we use to improve our productivity (emails, slack, basecamp etc.). Forget “Do Not Disturb”, Lyndsie will be sharing a few simple techniques that anyone can use to regain that focus.
Ollie Barker - Keeping developers happy
Designers and developers are more than two sides of the coin. The design-dev relationship is vital to the inner workings of any digital agency, but often overlooked. Ollie will be sharing some tips on what designers can do to make sure it’s an harmonious beneficial relationship for everyone.
Rachel Powell - The Slow Life
Rachel Powell forager, explorer and artivist at www.skyblue.pink will be sharing the power of the peripheries, a space where art, science and tech meet as well as introducing their first transdisciplinary project, The Slow Life. If you've ever wanted a simpler life or are fascinated by the Tiny House movement then you don't want to miss this.
Three speakers, three very different talks, and all the usual announcements, shout-outs and socialising that you're used to. But remember, Refresh Teesside's community is what makes it what it is, so you bring the people and we'll bring the pizza.
We'll be meeting at our regular haunt of Mink Bar, Middlesbrough at 6:30pm on Thursday 20th. Make sure to update your calendar and invite your friends and colleagues, and we'll see you there!
When & Where
Refresh Teesside follows the manifesto of other Refreshing Cities around the world. However, we have decided to open the events up to more than just designers and developers. We welcome all those who work in the creative industry including: photographers, marketing, printers, designers, developers etc. We made this decision in recognition of the importance of digital communities working closely together and increasing their understanding of other’s work, thus reaping the mutual benefits of collaboration.
