About Event

"Remixing Community for a Citizen Groove" invites you to a day of discussion on evolving our local coworking spaces into vibrant hubs of connection driven by your participation and ideas.

Tuesday, April 16th, at Peckham Levels, is not just another day. 

Today, we are working on a new COWORK PLUS project, which involves bringing active, existing conversations and projects together to help them connect and progress.

Hence, our title: "Remixing Community for a Citizen Groove!"

We aim to change how we approach coworking spaces and community engagement in our rapidly evolving world. We will collaborate to make this project groundbreaking.

The Open Source Cowork Plus Framework Guide contains ideas and stories to ignite conversations before, during, and after this event.

Why this event now?

We are running this event amidst global shifts like the pandemic's acceleration of remote work, wars and economic uncertainty.

There has been a 44% surge in remote work, with nearly 5 million thriving in coworking spaces. 

With elections in 50 countries and 2 billion people going to the polls in 2024, it's clear that our connections and local actions have never been more crucial.

We can't change the world, but we can find connection points in our neighbourhoods and local economies that connect and encourage positive momentum.

Full Agenda for the day

The ticket is entry into the event - there is one price for entry. 

You can come and go or stay for as much as you works for you. 

Tickets work on pay what you can, with a minimum of £12. 

If money hinders participation, don't hesitate to contact Laura, Stephen, Kofi, or Bernie. We'll sort something out and get you in! 

09:30 - 10:00 Arrival, welcome and breakfast

10:00 - 11:00 Act One - On the stage

Our friend Joyce Ogunade, Head of the Affordable Workspace Programme for the London Borough of Islington, will lead you all in an "Ask Me Anything" with the Author of "Citizen's" Jon Alexander to set the stage for the day. 

11:00 - 12:30 pm Act Two - "In the Pit"

Here, you'll break into small groups led by a guide from our community. 

We've deliberately mixed learning styles to encourage interaction, connection, deep conversations, and reciprocal learning between attendees.

Your group guide will bring topics, prompts and questions to help you connect and share ideas.

12:30 Feedback and What are we learning?

For this section, we'll give feedback and share what we discovered in our groups. 

We'll discuss how to move forward and connect with people who can help us. 

13:00 - 13:55 Lunch!

It happens in the same room and is a great chance to connect. 

There is also an outside rooftop area for fresh Peckham air! 

14:00 The Co-Creation Camp

At the heart of today's journey is "The Co-Creation Camp," your opportunity to merge minds and talents for the morning.

We invite you to post your ideas and challenges on our collaboration board throughout the day. 

Whether you're nurturing a concept or facing a hurdle, this is where you can seek your peers' collective wisdom and creativity.

As the camp begins, browse the board, team up, or find folks tackling questions you're passionate about. 

To be clear, this is a moment for open collaboration, not commerce. It is a chance to brainstorm, strategize, and dream up solutions together without pitches or sales.

Please bring your ideas and challenges, and let's co-create solutions that push us all forward.

15:45 Wrap up and closing ceremony

There are plenty of areas to hang around, chat and connect in Peckham Levels afterwards.

We are building better things for our coworking communities and beyond, and fixing everything depends on our joint efforts, values, and strong communities. Community is the key!! 🔑
