Come Along to the 1st ever Open Rights Group Birmingham Meet-up

I am proud to announce Open Rights Group Birmingham will be holding its 1st ever meet-up in just over a week’s time, after work on Wednesday 8th July.

Birmingham Open Media (BOM) have very kindly agreed to host our meet-up for free, which is fantastic. If you’re not familiar with their work, please do check them out.

The meet-up will be a relaxed, informal affair. It’s a chance for people with an interest in digital rights and open technology

to meet each other and figure out how we can work together to protect and promote digital rights in Birmingham and beyond.

By the end of the meet-up we should have a clearer idea of the issues we think Open Rights Group Birmingham should be focusing on and the next steps we will take to make progress on these issues.

Quite a few people have already expressed an interest in meeting up and forming an Open Rights Group Birmingham. It would be great if we could get as many people as possible along to the meet-up. I would be grateful if you could help spread the word by sharing this blog post and, if possible, printing and displaying a copy of the meet-up poster.

Admission is completely free but it would be helpful for planning purposes if you could let me know if you are thinking of coming. Francis Clarke. Email: clarke.francisg@gmail.com, Twitter: @francisclarke or Phone: 07749374339.
