Events in the Fabric community

Welcome back from what was (hopefully) a fun summer!

With a whole series of events planned for the next few months across Europe and globally, we’ve decided to make it easier for our friends & community to follow what we at Fabric are up to — and hopefully join us along the way.

We will use this post as a a compilation of events we are hosting, helping organise, and participate in — so check back in for updates!

☂️Fabric x Demos Westminster Summit — tba November/ December, London ☂️
