Small town, Big inspiration

At a time when the gap between urban and rural seems vast, we aim to connect through creativity. Our setting may be in a small-town, but the impact our speakers have had on the world is deep and lasting. We host quarterly meet-ups throughout the year centred around art, design and technology, and skill-based workshops during the winter. Speakers with local ties share their stories – What inspires and what challenges them? What are their aspirations? We hope you’ll join us to find out.
