Wellington monthly meet-ups

This thread is to discuss and make decisions about the monthly meet-ups we are planning to trial in Wellington from August to November this year.

After hui 3 the kaitiaki group (this is our new name - we used to be known as the shared-holders) considered the feedback from the post-hui 3 survey. A common theme raised by many people was a wish for easier ways to keep in touch with others in the community between hui to jam on projects, practice mindfulness and socialise. The idea of a regular meet-up was suggested and we've decided to trial a monthly meet-up in Wellington from August to November this year.

We want to co-create the meet-ups with the community so please share your ideas with us.

Our thoughts at this stage are that the meet-ups would be about 2 hours on a weekday evening. They would include a brief talk from someone in the community about a project or venture. We'd have time for community notices. Someone would lead a mindfulness or embodied practice and we'd end with social time over cake and tea/coffee. We're also thinking we'll trial project kitchens, which are a short process developed by Lifehack for connecting people around projects (here's a link to some info on project kitchens if you're interested https://lifehackhq.co/online-project-kitchens/).

CoLiberate have very kindly agreed to host the first meet-up in August. I'll send out a poll to decide on the date.

Awesome to see this coming into fruition! I won't be in the north island until after September, but count me in down the track :)
