  1. Hi Peter,

    Thanks for this blog post and I’m really glad you’re enjoying the book so far. (I enjoyed writing it so hopefully some of that enthusiasm comes across!)

    You’re right, there is such enormous scope for change and it seems we’re only at the beginnings of it. Like you, I’m really interested in what can happen if more regulated, traditionally less “creative” organisations actually take up these tools. It could go either way, of course…

    Best wishes,
    Jemima

  2. Hi Peter,

    Thanks – but don’t worry – no pressure! Christmas + snow seems to have set me back more than I could have imagined this year…

    Btw, do you know of any cultural/arts centres in Edinburgh that might be interested in a seminar/ workshop based on the book? I’m doing one in London next week and would be nice to spread the word!

    Cheers,
    Jemima

    HI Jemima
    Its been a while since I’ve been involved in putting on events in Edinburgh but a few potential venues some to mind:

    The Hub – the base for the ‘official’ Edinburgh Festival – its not the most informal of settings – more @ http://www.thehub-edinburgh.com

    Out of the Blue is an interesting arts building/ community and might be a good venue (a bit less central maybe) – http://2outoftheblue.org.uk/index.htm

    Gallery spaces include The Fruitmarket Gallery, a nice and light space but not sure how events work there – http://www.fruitmarket.co.uk/
    The City Arts Centre has a top floor for events/ workshops etc. including breakout rooms – http://www.edinburgh.gov.uk/internet/Leisure/Museums_and_galleries/CEC_city_art_centre

    Finally, there’s a social enterprise co-working space that might be of interest and has a good vibe – http://www.themeltingpotedinburgh.org.uk

    Hope these are useful. If you want some more info, let me know
    cheers

    ….. on a less formal basis you could try some of the people from Edinburgh Coffee Morning (sort of social media cafe) – see http://38minutes.ning.com/group/edinburghcoffeemorning

    I’ve never been but heard very good things and it looks good.

    cheers

  5. Hi Peter,

    Wow – some great suggestions there – many thanks!

    I’ll let you know how it goes.
