What we're about

Sunderland has long been an area renowned for its ability to create. In the 19th century, the area was home to a wide range of manufacturing industries, including glass making, coal mining and shipbuilding.

While these industries are now little more than marks on the landscape, the Sunderland of the 21st century is home to a burgeoning digital and creative sector.

Sunderland Digital aims to bring together and enrich this digital community through a series of informal monthly meetups and talks.


This group is for anyone interested in Digital in Sunderland and the surrounding North East region to meet, discuss and collaborate with other individuals and companies in the sector. If you are a freelancer, agency, startup or just someone with an interest in all things digital, we would love to see you.
