Big Society in the North

Last night saw the first collaborative event about the Big Society in the North. Nearly 100 people came together at Electric Works, Sheffield for some intense discussions about what the Big Society means to them, and how we might develop a distinctly northern voice for Big Society initiatives.

Before the event, I was interviewed on Radio Sheffield and attempted to explain what we were trying to do. Here is the interview:

Lucy Windmill of Amplified did a fantastic job of live blogging the event http://www.amplified10.com/bsitnorth/, and her colleague Ben Ellis took some great photos http://www.flickr.com/photos/jamin2/sets/72157624595053924/

David Wilcox shot some fantastic videos http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=3854D5176C8FFE1B.

The live video from the night is archived below. This was just the start of a conversation. Much more to follow.
