In the iLab we use service design to help people to undertake design challenges which help to make the world a better place. We’ve got a hunch that there is a lot of us out there in Shropshire who have the same ideas, and we want to bring as many people as we can together in order to form a network of socially minded innovators who want to share ideas and work together.
In the summer of 2015 we held the first Social Design Drinks event in Shrewsbury, followed up by our second event in Oswestry just before Christmas 2015. In 2016 we’re heading out around the County in the hope of meeting lots more people and growing our network. Social Design Drinks doesn’t have a set agenda, it’s just about getting together, introducing ourselves and having a couple of relaxed drinks in good company. At our first two events we’ve found Social Design Drinks a really good way of meeting new people and getting to know more about the great social facing work being done right here in Shropshire.
The next Social Design Drinks event will take place in Ludlow in Spring 2016. We’ll post the Eventbrite page here as soon as we have firmed up the details.
