Regular how to events with Othership’s partner General Assembly. Curated to share knowledge across the creative and tech communities.
Thursday, 21st of October

Building a community is part of being human, but we aren’t local tribes gathering around fire anymore. Today, it takes time and a lot of attention to bring people together.
Communities are awesome, right? A community is a place for inclusion, passion, and strong bonds with people with similar interests. But, how do we build a community from scratch? This is the first and most common question that everyone asks.
Are you ready? Come closer. We’ve all the secrets!
With an endless sea of distractions and options, building a community can be daunting. So we’ve partnered with General Assembly to learn everything we need to know about bringing people together and how to create engagement.
- Understand why you need a community
