The Link Is Coming Back: Thursday 12th May

The Link DBW1200x900

The Link, Rife Magazine’s networking event for young creatives in Bristol is back, as part of Digital Bristol Week.

Join us at the Watershed on Thursday 12th May from 7:30pm-9pm

Four months ago, we hosted The Link: a networking event for young creatives to meet people, chat and find out what’s going on around Bristol. I’m really excited to say that it’s back again, and this time it’s a part of Digital Bristol Week. Join us at the Watershed on Thursday 12th May from 7:30pm-9pm in the cafe/bar for the second event.

For those of you who came last time, you might ask ‘since you’ve made such useful and insightful links, what the point of coming again?’ Well I don’t know about you, but it felt as though there were loads of people who I didn’t get a chance to talk to last time. Personally, I’d love to A) meet the people I didn’t get chance to talk to and B) find out what’s new with the people I did talk to.

This time, the event is going to be a part of Digital Bristol Week, so we’re hoping to give this event a digital slant. However, that’s still an open ended-approach. Do you run an online magazine? Are you an animator? Do you digitally produce music? Do you work on robots? Hey, even if you’ve only got an interest in any of this stuff, then The Link will be a perfect space for you.

So, there are two things you can do if you’d like to get involved:

Firstly, if you consider yourself a young person, come along on Thursday, 12th May from 7:30pm till 9pm. Come down, meet some people and have fun 

Secondly, you can spread the word. This event works best when a wide variety of people come, so tell your friends, co-workers, family – anyone that you think might be interested. 

You can check out more information on the Watershed website and on Facebook event page. If you’d like to attend you can send me an e-mail on cai@rifemagazine.co.uk to let me know you’re coming and we can do our best to set you up with someone if you’re looking for something in particular.

But for now, I’ll see you on the 12th.

And as the American president famously said, ‘Obama out…’ *mic drop*

Support more young people to have their voices heard

Rife is Watershed‘s online magazine created for young people, by young people.

We offer paid internships and publish work by young writers, photographers, illustrators, and filmmakers from all sorts of backgrounds, helping them get into creative careers. Rife has reached over 8,000 young people through our workshops, over 220 young people have made stuff for Rife on topics ranging from mental health to identity to baked beans, and last year, over 200,000 people visited our website.

In these complex and uncertain times hearing from and supporting young people who are advocating for social change and contributing fresh perspectives has never been so important.
