CreativeCoffee Club London is changing, too. "We’re shaking things up a little with the CreativeCoffee Club London
meetings in 2009. Rather than continue with the cosy, weekly free for
all conversations of last year we’ll be doing less regular meet-ups,
but will begin to have larger and more themed conversations" says David Terrar, one of the founder members.
The first event is on Wednesday 21st January 9-12pm at the ICA. CreativeCoffee Club are running the event in conjunction with Amplified09 about the future of online video - be that television programming, film or original web content.
