ALTwork is six free sessions for people under 30 with entrepreneurs, artists and visionaries. Make an alternative future with meaningful work that values your skills: 18+ speakers, live music - see you there!
Each session will offer time to meet other participants and people involved in transformative businesses. Some may offer 'taster' and volunteer opportunities, as well as paid internships. And some can offer help in guiding you to start up your own transformative business.
Everyone will be able to stay connected through a discussion forum platform. Come for all six sessions, dip in and out, just do one - it's all good.

Building Ourselves Up
What’s your superpower? We’re all human beings capable of doing amazing things if we follow our dreams and build up our skills.
And maybe support one another in the process too. We’ll spend a few minutes getting to know one another.
The speakers joining us for this session are:
How do we maximise our potential? Learning. So, she started up Enrol Yourself, which offers 6-month Learning Marathons. And she’s part of The Living Projects which is all about people learning land-based skills together. They taught themselves how to build a roundhouse and then built it!
Astrid built the house she and her partner live in. With her own two hands. ‘Nuff said. But there’s more because she started up Touchwood South West teaching women carpentry and building skills so we can build places of our own, too.
He’s Jordan in the Community and he’s started up a few things, all aimed at lifting others to help them reach their potential. He’s overcome some hurdles himself. Now, his little coffee shop is helping young people get some life skills and poised to lead the reinvention of his town’s oldest street.
