It's our last Be Part of It! tonight

Tonight is another one of our brilliant Be Part of It! evenings - and we’re excited to see some of you there! These evenings are for our prospective event hosts to come along and share their ideas for their talks and workshops that will make up the festival’s programme that is fit-to-burst with interesting, thought-provoking and engaging events.

Why do we love our Be Part of It! evenings so, you might wonder? Luckily, we’ve created this handy list of 5 reasons why these evenings are our favourite:

  1. We meet new people who are keen to participate in the festival as event hosts. They’re all linked to service design in some way, but their backgrounds are really diverse which means we meet some really interesting people and companies

  2. We hear new and innovative ideas from service design practitioners; ideas that are really pushing the envelope and introducing new ways of thinking

  3. We work collaboratively with the people who help make the festival what it is by contributing our ideas for their workshops too - we all help and support each other which makes the final events the best they can be

  4. We show our event hosts the ethics behind the festival, from why it started to our hopes and dreams for the festival to our commitment to great inclusion and diversity as part of the festival

  5. We feel the festival coming together as ideas and events are thrown into the mix, inching ever closer to the kick-off in September

So, there you have it. Five great reasons why we love our Be Part of It! evenings.

This is our final session of the year, having had some excellent event ideas brainstormed and submitted to us for the festival in September. The deadline has passed for submitting an event idea to be in the festival now. However, we will be making the odd exception on a case-by-case basis. If you’re kicking yourself that you’ve missed the deadline, then do get in touch and we’ll see what we can do.
