Project Beacon

I have just received this notice:

"On the 11th, 12 and 13th of November, BizDojo are holding workshops to discuss the creation, activation and population of Project: Beacon - a new space in the Hutt City for the benefit of entrepreneurs, freelancers, startups, small businesses and innovators working in the region with an interest in exploring what it means to be based closer to home.

"We want you! Your experience and ideas can help form this project, which aims to encourage activity and growth across all sectors in the Hutt City Region. We want you to have a place that feels like somewhere you can be productive, meet with clients and collaborators, and have a great time. But what do you want? BizDojo are New Zealand's largest co-working provider, and our collaboration with Hutt City Council is focussed on finding solutions that work for local people.

"Our workshops provide a neutral environment for you to make suggestions, have discussions, tell us what you need, and meet other movers and shakers working across the fields of technology, entertainment, design, sustainability and beyond! We will be facilitating workshop attendees through an engaging process. Come with the will to voice your opinions and listen to those of others.

"Each workshop will be two hours, with refreshments and snacks provided. Places are limited. Please sign up here for a workshop time that suits you."

I myself have just signed up for a workshop!
