About this project
This is a project that I started in August 2010. I had moved to Portsmouth 2 years before and was struggling to meet anyone in my industry. So I started a networking evening called Portsmouth Freelancers Meet.
Since starting as a little meetup with 3-4 people, it’s grown to a have around 20-30 people attend every month, and I’ve also thrown annual Christmas and Summer parties where we have 50+ people attend. Over the years I’ve also put on quizzes, charity raffles, an evening of talks & doodling at our Dribbble meetup, and various other events!
It’s the project I’m most proud of. I’m very passionate about the world of freelancing, and it’s great to have a group of local people who you can lean on for support, or just meet up with for a casual drink once a month.
