Where we’ll be in March 2015

Steven at the Gathering 2015
After a quieter start to the year event-wise for the BIG Advice Team in Scotland, we’ll be putting in the miles over March to reach out to people across Scotland!

In February we took in a few events, including the Gathering at the SECC, a conference in Possilpark and funding events in Ayr, Kirkintilloch and Renfrew. This month we’ll be venturing a little further afield…

Check out the map and table below for details of where we’ll be over the coming month. Most of these events offer you the chance to come along and talk to us about project ideas and funding, and we’ll also be doing a few more in depth workshops.

We look forward to seeing you out on the road!

Future Events

We are also currently lining up events in April and the rest of the year. If all goes to plan we’ll be in Edinburgh, Dundee, Aberdeen, Stirling and North Lanarkshire over the following few months, with more events in the pipeline. We’ll keep you updated, so watch this space!

If you are running a funding fair or conference, and are interested in having someone from the BIG Advice Team along, let us know! We have a small team, and a busy schedule, but will consider all requests and try to come along if we’re able.

As usual, make sure you follow us on Twitter @BIGScotland for the latest on all these events, and any others coming up.
