Come Join in! The #rp17 Community Corner

After the Love Out Loud! motto flooded the social networks and, hopefully, your #rp17 calendars as well, it's finally going to be time to get down to the nitty gritty during the three conference days. Many of the talks and discussions will inspire you to get engaged and get things going yourself. The Community Corner in the labore:tory is there for anyone who's still looking for the necessary contacts and advice.

We've already told you about our Love Out Loud! panels. Our LoL initiatives will be on-site in the Community Corner to take time for you. Small workshops and Q&A sessions allow you to get to know them better, talk to them about their methods or learn how you yourself can organise a campaign for refugees, diversity or against hate speech.

Maybe you already have an idea of how you would like to get involved, or you've already gotten started with your own project? There are still a couple free timeslots that you could use in the Community Corner. If you're interested, then just find the bulletin board and reserve a slot! The Community Corner is located on the 3rd floor of the labore:tory (in the Kühlhaus).  

The Community Corner programme:
