Misfits Local

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.

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 Storyteller - Beverley

This month's Misfit Story will question whether you need to be an artist to make art. Often when we refer to artists, we mean people who are paid for their art. But there are countless other ways to value art, not just by selling it.

Beverley made the move from corporate life to yoga teacher. She is now a yoga teacher with over 30 years of experience. Beverley has also journalled her way through the highs and lows of life in recent years, amazed at the power of journalling to get her unstuck and inspired.  

Come along to hear Beverley in conversation with Steve O'Connor, designer and co-organiser of Cambridge's creative meet up CamCreatives, and learn about ways to regularly tap into your creativity using creative journalling.
