25th August 2016
The 1st ShareUp Soton event was a great success! We had a load of interesting ideas and discussions around content creation over at Rareloop from creative individuals in the local area. There were attendees from painters, bloggers, designers and even game programmers!
To kick off the start of the event Rareloop had put on a spread of food and refreshments, which was well received by all attendees. Once everyone had arrived and mingled with one another, we then moved on to a talk given by a website design student, and co-organiser of ShareUp, Jack Davies.
Presentation – You are all creators
The talk was centered around everybody’s creativity, and how they’ve been creating content their whole lives, what options are available for them to continue creating content and growing as a creative and how to get started. The full presentation can be viewed and downloaded at the following link.

Thank you again to Rareloop for helping us put on a great event!
To wrap things up, all attendees were paired up with another content ‘buddy’. Once paired, they made a commitment to create content. The content could be a small or big goal, as long as it was achievable by the next event and it was something they were interested in. It is encouraged that creators task themselves with something that they have been neglecting or have never experimented with before, but are interested in learning.
