A regular meet-up in West Yorkshire for anyone who is interested in design and designing for the public.

We borrow a space, organise the sessions for the meet-up, and invite you along.

Sessions can be talks, workshops, videos, whatever. It's down to earth, kept small(ish), about being open and sharing in a safe space. You will be among friends! And we hope you take something away from the meet-up.

Interested in doing a session at a meet-up? Get in touch!
