Urbano Communities

Urbano Create

Urbano Create is a network which connects together those in TV, film, animation, advertising, publishing alongside other creatives, including branding, marketing, design, copywriting and strategy. Create is where architects can meet interior designers, wordsmiths connect to web developers, digital experts meet those who can draw, and those dealing with external communications meet those who drive change internally.

We have seen the diaspora of talent working in all forms of old and new media move from Soho to Shoreditch and back again, and now forming new creative hubs in London Bridge, King's Cross, and at other points of the London business compass.

Urbano Create aims to showcase and those who are setting new standards in the creative sectors and bring together diverse companies - and those that run them - to build alliances, seek new work, and help each other understand the shape of the future for this fast-moving and important UK sector.

MEMBERS NETWORKING ROUND TABLE

THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 2ND - 10.00AM

As we look forward to more loosening of restrictions to allow us al to meet our friends and colleagues in physical spaces, alongside the roll-out of vaccines, for the time-being, we continue to bring our members together virtually and on-screen for our next monthly Urbano Members Networking Round Table.

Lasting an hour, Urbano Round Tables are informal drop-ins, a chance to chat, meet new faces, and find new introductions. After checking in on everyone, we will disappear into break-out rooms where if you don't find someone interesting to talk to we will give you a full refund (it's free).

Booking essential to get sent the Zoom link. Exclusively for members and no limit on who you send. If you have anyone who thinks on-screen networking is dull and impossible to use to make connections, book them on.

BUILD SPEAKER EVENT WITH SIMON ALLFORD, PRESIDENT OF RIBA

WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 15th - 9.30AM

Simon is a founding director of global architecture practice, Allford Hall Monaghan Morris (AHMM) where he leads a design studio of 200 architects. Simon is a frequent writer, critic and advisor, a visiting professor at Harvard, a trustee of the London School of Architecture and the Chickenshed Theatres Trust. In 2020, Simon was elected the next president of the Royal Institute of British Architects and takes up the role on September 1st.

On his election, Simon said he wanted to create "a more open, productive, engaged and reinvigorated RIBA" that addresses "global climate change and architecture's pivotal role in a post-pandemic world." This event will hear from Simon on his plans to deliver on his priorities and where he sees the future of architecture within the fast-changing landscape of the built environment, leading into an interactive Q&A, with networking to follow. 

Our hosts - The Building Society - is a co-working space and collaborative community for everyone working within the build environment sector, created by Urbano Members Structural & Civil Engineers, Elliott Wood. This is a place where we can all start to engineer a better society.

Mark Goodier on Urbano 
"I found speaking at the Urbano event a very positive experience. Mark Herring is a remarkable speaker and he immediately set up a very positive atmosphere in the room and focussed the audience. I had very positive feedback both during and after my talk and would not hesitate to do it again. Mark is also clearly a remarkable networker and to be honest I’d strongly recommend attending pretty much any of his Urbano events".

Please note: Urbano events and membership are open to all. You will find 'Create' Community companies at all Urbano events. Our events themselves are designed to develop links between companies and across sectors: Films need finance and tech equipment; architects need software and fly-through animations; construction projects using BIM now include VR and gaming technology for marketing purposes. Urbano is one network with different communities and companies looking to connect.
