Event description

Description

Join us for the very first RSA Engage in Preston to spark new conversations, meet new people, and discover ideas that have the potential to become a powerful source for social change. Everybody is welcome to join us at this event, in partnership with Eden Project Communities.

In 1754, William Shipley founded the RSA with a belief that the creativity of ideas could enrich social progress. Over 250 years later, we’ve taken inspiration and developed a series of events across the UK to engage with, encourage, and support people to turn their ideas into action.

RSA Engage provides a brilliant platform to ignite, share and support ideas for change. A mix of projects will be shared, followed by an opportunity to find out more from the people driving them forward and get involved, responding to each speaker's "call to action".

MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE ENGAGE SERIES

What is RSA Engage?
RSA Engage is a series of 20 events hosted around the UK which provide a space to make new connections and enable us to showcase innovative local projects. Whether you’re looking to find out more about the RSA, get involved with an exciting project, or to network with like-minded people, RSA Engage offers something for everyone.

What’s the format?
RSA Engage is a mix of 6-8 lightning talks and facilitated networking. Each speaker finishes with a call to action, asking the audience to share their skills and experience to help further their project. Between project talks, there are short bursts of networking where you’ll be able to spark new connections and talk to the speakers about how you might support their work. This is an interactive, standing event, though limited seating may be available.
