If you write stuff, and live in London, I recommend you pop along to WriteClub London casual chats with other writery-types, because in August they’re meeting at the Barbican, as part of the Hack the Barbican event.
Here’s the blurb from Al Robertson, the magnificent host of WriteClub London:
Exciting news! We’ve got a rather wonderful new venue for August’s meetup – we’re going to be hitting the Barbican, as part of August’s Hack the Barbican month. Here’s the blurb about it:
For four weeks between 5-31 August 2013 the cavernous foyer areas of The Barbican will be taken over by London’s biggest ever experiment in cross-disciplinary collaboration. Bringing together artists, technologists and entrepreneurs, Hack The Barbican sets out to explore new boundaries and reinterpret one of the world’s great cultural centres. Nothing is off limits. Everything is open to question.
And here’s the HtB website: http://hackthebarbican.org
In practice, what it means is that we get to talk writing and enjoy a drink or two in the splendid Brutalist vision of tomorrow that is the Barbican foyer. We’re in Alcove 1 of the Mezzanine – I’ll ping through an exact description of where that is once I’ve walked the ground myself. And being part of HtB should bring us some fascinating new tech, media and arts people to talk writing with , too!
More details to follow – in the meantime, I’m looking forward to seeing you there on the 15th, as ever from 7pm until late. And of course, we’ll be back in our usual venue at the Yorkshire Grey in September.
Visit the WriteClub London meetup page for full details.
And if you’re in Brighton, don’t forget that there is a thriving WriteClub group for you too!
