Hello world!

Welcome along!

This is just one of those first posts that everyone inevitably logs when they sign up for a new service. They usually make minimal contribution to the wider world and have very little meaning than delivering those ever famous two words, hello world. Avoidance of this is now at the forefront of my mind.

The purpose of this page is to document the efforts of the folks at WAcreative (soon to be abbreviated to WAc I would imagine) as we try to get the group off the ground. Hopefully we can avoid any connotations there!

So, diving into episode one, we find ourselves in a turbulent environment. WAc (damn it!) is setup to deliver a mixing pot for those working in the creative industries in and around Warrington. It's a very simple idea really, connect people who work in the same industry and let everyone make some connections. This is something that has been sadly lacking in town for a while and we'll try our best to sort that out. We'll also try to remember to maintain this site as a documentary of how well (or otherwise!) we do.

We ran the first meetup back in October. The event was a massive success, aside from us having to compete with the comedy night at the Lounge. The ideology of these events is primarily to connect people, but secondarily to create something more than the sum of its parts. And to do it in a fun and informal way. So if you're new to the ideas of meetups, don't feel at all put-off by coming down, all are welcome. So whether you work in digital media, music or photography, welcome to the pot.

We've just scheduled the second meetup for the 30th November and we look forward to seeing you there. We've also got the WAc twitter feed fired up so follow and keep in touch that way.
