  • I have been for meetings with Stockton Council but nothing has come of those meetingsI have read and heard things in the press about how Teesside is a digital hub. I have tried to contact the gazette about todays event but nobody is interested.Digital City setup Boho to be the centre of the hub however I understand 80% of the building is taken up by one company.Digitial City first wednesdays is attened by a closed group of people. Teesside University have spent a long time talking about how they are at the centre of this digital hub. People who have come out of Teesside University are not employable in my industry – I have tried to contact them to offer my time for FREE!

    3. 3. REFRESH TEESSIDE Refresh Teesside follows the manifesto of other Refreshing Cities around the world. However, we have decided to open the events up to more than just designers and developers. We welcome allthose who work in the creative industry including: photographers, marketing, printers, designers, developers etc. We made this decision in recognition of the importance ofdigital communities working closely together and increasing their understanding of other’s work, thus reaping the mutual benefits of collaboration.
    4. 4. REFRESH TEESSIDEIn Teesside there are hundreds of creative businesses who can benefit from knowing each other. Many of thebusinesses are relatively small in size, focusing on a specific skill or service.Everyone can benefit from knowing other professionals intheir own trades and networking with other professionalswho offer skills and services they may require in the future.
    5. 5. WHY TEESSIDE Newcastle is a digital hub! They have support, networking events, meet ups and places to collaborate.Teesside talks about being a digital hub, but are we? We have the people, the knowledge and the skills but no method of meeting up and collaborating. Refresh Teesside is an idea by a web developer living and working in Teesside... It’s a platform to make Teesside a digital hub... It’s now up to you to help make it happen!
