Southend gets a lot of stick, some of it deserved, some out of spite and it annoys me.
In the last ten years or so, Southend has gone though a lot of changes and had a lot of money invested in regeneration (see pier entrance, new highstreet), the College has grown in size and we have a new University campus.
And yet the snide comments continue to rear their heads, and I think its a shame.
I know that Southend has a vibrant student/creative and technology community but that its rarely seen, so I’ve decided to setup a Meetup group to see what we actually have. My aim is first and foremost to get people together, you dont have to be interested in Arts, Music, Literature or Technology.
Just be interested and we’ll go from there.
So this can go one of two ways, either It will be a spectacular success or not, either way I would love for you to get involved http://www.meetup.com/creativedevelopers/
