What is Misfit Local?
A place to get help with your ideas, and help others with theirs.
Misfit Local offers you the space to discuss ideas and dreams in an environment of support and non-judgement. Do you have an idea you're trying to get off the ground? Are you exploring options and need help to decide between them? Do you want to bring your skills and resources to help someone else's ideas? Then you're a Misfit! Misfits are artists, writers, community workers, designers, entrepreneurs, coaches, activists... anyone who wants to live life with intention, doing work that matters.
When and Where?
The third Wednesday of every other month at Hot Numbers. Too hard to keep track? Join the mailing list and you won't need to - we'll send you reminders. We're nice like that!
Expect conversation, questions, and telling a little of your own story. Naysaying and asking the question, "So what do you do?" are off limits, but with great coffee, wines, and beers on offer, who could be a grouch? With an average of twenty friendly people each time, and a quarter of those fresh faces, you don't need to worry about being the new kid on the block either.
This Month's Misfit Storyteller: Emily
This month's Misfit Storyteller will be Emily. Emily is recently returned from a social innovation journey called "Seek the Change." Her travels, mostly by train, took in Poland, Russia, Lithuania, Mongolia, China and more. Along the way she met people working on sustainability initiatives to try to understand what motivates people to make a change in their community and the key ingredients of the most successful initiatives. You can find out more about Emily's learning in her self-published booklet, here.
