What is Misfit Local?
Misfit Local is the place to listen to stories from other people in our community here in Cambridge, UK – Misfit Storytellers. Misfit Storytellers are just like you and me – trying to make a difference where we can, trying to understand our journey so far in life, and trying to help others along the way. By sharing our stories, we can learn from each other and help each other to move closer to the change we want to see.
Misfit Local is also the place to bring an idea, whatever stage it’s at – seed, shoot, or sapling. It’s difficult to do things differently, and take steps to get an idea off the ground – especially if it’s an idea you’re really passionate about, and others keep shouting you down! At Misfit Local you can share your idea in a supportive environment and ask for help from the community.
* No one should ever be unable to attend Misfit Local because they can't afford it, so we're committed to keeping it free, as we see it as part of our contribution to the community. We will shortly be changing the sign up process so that you can choose to make a donation, if you're able to. You can still attend for free and we'll never hassle you for money.
When and Where?
Every other month, from 7pm to 9.30pm at Hot Numbers, Gwydir St, Cambridge.
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 Storytellers
This month's Misfit Storytellers are Sarah and Woody, who started The Utopian World of Sandwiches back in 2011. The Utopian World of Sandwiches is a games company with a difference. They want to make games with a purpose that have a meaningful impact on their players. Their first game, Chompy Chomp Chomp, was created to bring people together in the same room.
They work from a shed in their garden in Cambridge, balancing day jobs, friends, family and each other - and their utopian dream.
