How can we support the arts in Preston?

Fresh from Ed Walker at BlogPreston:

**register by 5pm today here**

The second Preston Tweetup is set to be held on Monday 27th July 2009 at the New Continental in their ‘Snug’ area. The event is part of Preston Tringe.

A tweetup is where people come together, bring along their wi-fi enabled laptop and/or mobile phone and meet other people. People also twitter during the course of the night, so even if you can’t make it you can see what’s happening and contribute, by following #prestontweetup.

At Preston Tweetup we’re going to be discussing ‘How can we support the arts in Preston?’

With the Preston Tringe festival hopefully in full flow, the Tweetup is a chance to discuss how we build on the great work already being done in the city and help music, comedy, theatre, art and everything else that comes under 'arts' to flourish in our city.

Wi-fi access will be provided free of charge.

The plan for the night is to start around 8 PM, allow half an hour for drinking and making the wireless access work. At 8.30 PM we’ll introduce the night’s topic and then break off into smaller groups to brainstorm (you’ll be allocated a number as you arrive) and then around 9.30 PM one person will feedback to everyone what their group came up with. The rest of the night will be free for socialising, idea bouncing and networking.

The first Preston Tweetup was held on 17th March 2009 and was about how the web can be used in Preston Guild 2012. Find out what happened and see some pictures from the event.
