And thats it…
SWARM will host a last time a After Town Hall on September 27.
We are glad (and a bit proud) that we hosted that open Community Space without any interruption over the past 2+ Years. Many Collaborations and Partnerships have sparked out of this event and the value and impact which has been generated will last long
However, the IOG Catalyst Team never made any real attempts in recognising the Community efforts in upholding or further developing this initiative, and almost 1 year of doing that for free and after several downvoted Proposals which would have allowed us to maintain and further develop the Event, we are finally stepping back. Looking back, it is sad to recognise that we can hardly speak about any real Collaboration from the IOG Catalyst Team.
Suggestions, recommenations or wishes from our side, never had been taken serious and the IOG Catalyst Team missed a great chance in taking the After Town Hall initiative as a playing field to train real collaborations with the Community. ( what also reflects and translates far beyond the Town Hall to Project Catalyst as whole )
However, ^^ We are looking for competent successors which are interested in taking over the After Town Hall and started conversations with People & Projects to get there
We want to thank everyone who joined the spaces and made the open rooms a lively and interesting space.
