Bognor Regis Raspberry Jam

Raspberry Pi will be celebrating being 7 years old on the weekend of 2nd-3rd March 2019!! To celebrate we are hosting one of over 100 Raspberry Jams around the world as part of the Big Birthday Weekend!

Raspberry Jams are community-led events run by volunteers to share knowledge, learn new things and meet fellow Raspberry Pi enthusiasts, digital makers and coders. We will be offering a mixture of show-and-tell presentations, tutorials, and a lot of tinkering with your Raspberry Pi based projects! There will be Raspberry Pis for you to play with if you don’t already own one, if you have your own you are more than welcome to bring it, but please don't forget your keyboard, mouse and screen.

This event is ideal if you have a Raspberry Pi and are not sure what to do with it, or are seeking inspiration for new ideas. Or if you've made a project and are looking for an audience to share it with, then this is the perfect place for you too! Raspberry Pi enthusiasts will be showing off their latest projects for you to try, and sharing tips and tricks for others to learn for future events!

If you would like to bring along a project to show, or volunteer your time to help run the event then please get in touch with Carl (bognorregisjam@gmail.com).

We can also be contacted via Twitter (@bognorregisjam) or Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/bognorregisjam)

The event is free and open to all. We have a limited number of spaces so please booking tickets in advance is a must.

SheSays Brighton: Where is She Now?

Welcome to a massive SheSays evening of talks and networking with five fantastic speakers.

We've been running these events since 2011 and we're delighted to invite back five previous speakers, who, since appearing at SheSays have taken major national leadership roles in their industries. Come and celebrate their successes on International Women's Day 2019. 

We're honoured to hear again from Emily Scoggins, now a music and tech Marketing consultant. Since she last spoke at SheSays in 2013, Emily became Head of Marketing of the world's most successful venue: the O2. She spoke at SXSW 2018 on "How will AI distrupt the current music ecosystem?" and "How Adobe Campaign helped keep The O2 Fan-First" at Adobe Summit Europe 2018. @emilyrocks

We're excited to hear from digital strategist Melissa Ezechukwu who went on to be Global Digital Lead at Marie Stopes after she spoke at SheSays in 2015. She now spends her days helping charities and non-profits engage better online, finding solutions to their problems, and inspiring them about the opportunities a good website can bring. @MelEzechukwu

Natalie Kane wowed us in 2017 with her predictions of the future of tech, when she was working for Manchester's Future Everything. We're so proud that she is now Curator of Digital Design at the Victoria and Albert Museum. We can't wait to hear about all her adventures and plans. @nd_kane

Welcome back to Alison Coward founder of Bracket and who inspired us back in 2016. She works with forward-thinking teams to help them transform the way they work together. Her company provides workshop design and facilitation, training, coaching and consultancy to help teams find the perfect balance between creativity and productivity. @bracketagency

Be dazzled by Dr Cara Courage, who first spoke at SheSays in 2012 and is now Head of Tate Exchange based at Tate Modern. She is author of 'Arts in Place'; is an RSA Fellow and passionately believes in the arts in society and in the power of creativity in all forms and by all people in the urban realm. @caracourage
