Building A Global Local Community

 

They come for the football; they stay for the jokes. Or. They come for the football; they stay for the sense of civic engagement. Or. They come for the football; they stay for the idea that the future is nothing to be scared of.

In his talk, Neil Atkinson will discuss the rise of The Anfield Wrap and how the specific is universal, how bespoke isn't the same as DIY, how trying to help people enjoy a leisure activity more crosses over into endless explorations of identity, belonging and culture. He will talk about joy, curating and professionalising a culture, and how the word "podcast" is a bit mad when you stop to think about it.

He won't talk about football. Not really.
