Event description
Sheffield Content Club is a meetup for people in Sheffield who write, design, make or plan content.

About this Event

Sheffield Content Club is a meetup for the city’s content creators. It’s a place to meet like-minded folk and share stories, all in a positive, welcoming environment. Join us for edition three on 7th November from 6.30pm at Site Gallery.

What's it all about?

I know, I know – content is such a broad term that can mean all sorts of different things. But we don’t need to worry about that. If you’re involved in the process of making content of any kind – words, pictures, audio, video – then this is the meetup for you.

Whether you’re a writer, illustrator, designer, podcaster or someone who makes things happen, we’ll come together, share what we know and see if we can build our own little community.

Look who’s talking

For this third edition of Sheffield Content Club, we have a fantastic speaker lined up with (fingers crossed) another to announce soon.

Nigel Jones is the lead content designer at HM Prisons and Probation Service, based at the HMPPS Digital Studio in Sheffield. He is also a trainer for Content Design London, helping people learn the skills they need to create user-centred content.

We're very pleased to have Nigel join us, as the content design process is one that we can all learn from. Many of us plough straight into the actual making of content without thinking about who it is for and what they might actually want or need.

User-centred content is all about avoiding those pitfalls by making sure the people your content is for are part of the design process. Nigel is an expert in the area and we look forward to hearing how it's done.

What happens at Sheffield Content Club?

Speakers

Like most meetups, you’ll get to hear from two fantastic speakers who’ve created some cracking content. They’ll be sharing their work and we’ll be asking them to take us behind the scenes to see how it all got made. We want you to go away inspired, but also full of practical ideas that you can then use in your own thing, whatever that may be.

The Content Exchange

We’re going to rope off a section of wall space where we’ll have two columns. Column one will be for you to offer up your services or types of project you’d like to get involved with. In column two, you can add a specific project, topic or idea that you’re looking for help with. It’s professional matchmaking with Post Its.

Eating, drinking, polite chit-chat

Of course, there will be plenty of time for you to enjoy a beverage, eat something delicious and get down to some good old-fashioned talking to people. There will be beer, wine and soft drinks too, plus some veggie canapés that you scoff away at.
