Hello Steemians of the world!
You might not know about Adelaide. We're a sleepy, freely settled town, as opposed to the convict colonies that make up the vast majority of Australia's other capitals. We're entering winter, which to us is daytime temperatures hovering just under 15C, and night temperatures ranging from 3-7C depending on what part of town you're from.
If you're unlucky enough (or lucky enough) to live closer to the hills, or in the hills, it'll be even colder.
So how do you escape the freezing, grasping maws of uncle frostbite? You join us.
On Thursday, the 28th of June, a haphazard and large throng of Adelaide based Steemians will descend upon The Jade for burgers, conversation; and human connection.
No, it's not some sort of bizarre online speed dating event - it is a time to sit, face to face, with other people who post content on this platform; ask them how they are; connect, and have some deep, profound conversations.
It's also where projects can be born! I plan on having a discussion with @wildflowerjessi about a short film project, and want to get her, @stuffing, and eventually @alannapendragon (and myself) involved in some sort of collaborative art exhibition where the common theme bringing the artists together is the Steem block-chain; and so we can discover what tenuous, if any; links exist between our practice. Sorry for throwing this one on you guys!
(We could even register it as a Fringe event in a year or so, depending on how we plan this!)
As usual, @o07 will crack open the vault and have a piece of silver on offer as a lucky door prize, and the Steem mobile will be parked nearby. The atmosphere we experienced last time was magical - it wasn't a bunch of Internet strangers mingling - there was real human connection, bright conversation, and a sense of optimism in the face of a continued bull-market across crypto.
It isn't about bulls and bears, though. Cute creatures they may be; the human relationships are what really matters at this monthly meet.
The Jade: 142-160 Flinders Street, Adelaide SA 5000
Thursday, the 28th of June, 6PM Onwards.
Get out of your comfort zone and have real conversations with real people.
See you all soon!
This event is an open invitation, so if you're in the area, drop on in. We'll gladly have you. Steemian, or not; you'll find some decent people here!
