The Lancaster Social is an event held three times a year in the Lancaster district as an open forum. Any individual, organisation or service are welcome to join us, our hope is to create a broad network for the cooperative cross-pollination of experience and ideals. Each meeting has a specific format incorporating a QA session where you can bring your digital/social media queries; a short introduction to an open tool to use by yourself or your organisation; and the chance to meet and make connections in a relaxed environment.
The meetings are held in a local venue with the emphasis on open admission and no barrier to entry, if you want to meet and be a part of the growing community, to network and maintain connections, or to bring an issue or learn a new tool, then you’re welcome.
