What we're about

This is a group for freelancers and remote workers to meet, work together and socialise. The idea is to reduce the solitary nature of remote working by gathering at suitable venues and having casual work sessions together over a cup of coffee.

The sessions begin in the morning with a little social time (15 minutes or so); we work on our respective projects until lunch time, when we take a break and socialise. Work then continues for a few hours in the afternoon.

We find that co-working offers significant benefits - it's not only an escape from the isolation of freelance work, but can also boost work efficiency, and allows exchanging ideas on how to be more productive, etc.

Our main activity consists of two weekly work sessions at venues that include In Via Lactea and the Beacon Loaf. We also have a Facebook group and a Slack channel. Hope to see you soon :)

Upcoming events (4+)

Monthly social! Meet other co-workers in the group & unwind :)

Needs a location

Sun's out, days are longer, and it's time to get together for our monthly social! Nice and chilled after-work drinks to unwind.

We don't always get to meet others in the group due to different schedules, with many members only able to make it to some of the sessions. This is a great way to finally meet each other and get to know the group a bit better!

It's also a nice way to get involved with the group if you haven't had a chance to come along to any of our events so far.

Drop in at any point, even if it's just a quick hello! We'll be at the venue from 6.30 pm and will be out for two or three hours (will head there a bit earlier myself to try and grab an outdoors table at the Small Bar, if that fails we can move indoors or elsewhere on King Street!).

Small Bar does food too if you're wondering :)

That's all, hope to see you there!

Casual Co-Working at Dareshack

Needs a location

Hi all,

This Monday we will be at Dareshack, a stylish and spacious cafe serving great coffee right by Castle Park. The session starts at 10:30, but there's no obligation to show up on time - just turn up when is convenient for you during the session.

After coffee and/or a pastry, we will work on our respective projects for a couple hours, get lunch around noon, and continue work if needed.
*Please do be mindful of purchasing drinks or food throughout the session (every 1.5-2 hours is a good rule of thumb) to make sure that the event is beneficial to the venue as well :)*

Please note that attendance is capped at 12 for the time being.

I think that's all - hope to see you there :)

Casual co-working at Beacon Loaf

Needs a location

NOTE: Carlo (the venue's manager) has kindly agreed to let us increase the attendance cap a little (from 12 to 15) to help those who end up on waitlist. Let's do our part by making sure we make regular purchases and try and sit two per table as far as possible. Thanks :)

Hi all,

The Beacon Loaf is a spacious, airy cafe with good WiFi that makes great coffee, pastries and lunch options. We will aim to get there around 9 am to take advantage of a nice coffee + pastry deal, but there's no obligation to show up on time - just turn up when is convenient for you during the session.

After coffee and/or a pastry, we will work on our respective projects for a couple hours (remember to bring your laptops), get lunch around noon, and continue work if needed.

Please do be mindful of purchasing drinks or food throughout the session (every couple hours is a good rule of thumb) to make sure that the event is beneficial to the venue as well :)

Please also note that attendance is capped at 15 for now.

I think that's all - hope to see you there :)
