Be a part of the Rebellion!

An evening of talks from some of the most authoritative speakers in Shropshire working within the digital industry today.

Rebellion is a quarterly free to attend event, organised by Shropgeek. Each evening  opens up discussions about ideas and issues relevant to the web / tech / creative industries. The May event, held on 23rd, will cover two topics from some of the leading talent in the county. “Delivering Compelling Content Online” by Chris Pritchard - Editor of Shropshire Live and “Building Useful, Interactive Apps on top of social media platforms” from Adam Griffiths - a freelance web developer.

Each Rebellion is designed to be a relaxed, social evening consisting of 2 - 3 talks from Shropshire folk (and sometimes further afield) working within the digital / creative industries.

Kirsty Burgoine, one of the organisers of Shropgeek says:

“Shropgeek has always wanted to give a voice to those people working within the digital and creative industries in Shropshire. No matter whether they work as a web / app developer or something far less technology orientated such as a photographer or copywriter. “

“By introducing Rebellion to our schedule of events we can do exactly that.  It is a chance for people to do a "show and tell" about the work they do, projects they are involved with, or to discuss a topic they are passionate about and we invite anybody that is interested in providing a talk to get in touch.”

The launch event, held on February 21st was a huge success, with over 40 people in attendance.  Shropshire Council’s web team, Project WIP discussed some of the changes they have been making to and why, and film colourist and photographer Rob May gave a fascinating talk about the theory of colour.

The next Rebellion event will be held on May 23rd, upstairs at The Alb in Shrewsbury. Doors open at 6.30pm with the first talk starting at 7pm.

Shropshire has a thriving digital / tech / creative community, so why not come along and be a part of something. Join the Rebellion!
