Last week, we held our first Friday Wine Down Evening here in Lisbon, and some friends from outside our team came to join us. This included André Marquet, who helps organise TEDxEdges, and Sam Page, my brother and sometimes writer.
Inspired by the chalkboard-paint walls of LOW, a bar in Bairro Alto, we jointly came up with the concept of BYÖC (Bring Your Own Chalk). The idea is simple. It is an unconference and an unpowerpoint event, free to attend and present. Every participant can have 5 minutes to talk through their idea and drawing on the walls of LOW to illustrating their points.
All you have to do is bring yourself, your ideas and your chalk. It is that simple.
The first session will be at 7pm on 7th of January 2011. The address is R. da Barroca 75.
