Backstage Pass KL: Community Building by Design


Design thinking is a human-centred approach to problem solving, and when it comes to building communities, this particular approach will be particular fitting, for what can be more human than community? In our 12th session of Backstage Pass, we draw on the toolkit of a designer to explore integrating the needs of people with technology to address the challenges of community building.

Backstage Pass by Peatix is a community event for event organisers - exchange lessons, connect with people who enable events and grow as a group. We're in our 12th session!

Venue Partner

Uppercase is a collaborative workspace located within a repurposed commercial printing factory in Bangsar. In fact, this printing heritage is how we got our name. We make our home in the loft of the 64-year-old factory – a 6000 sq. ft. open space with an eclectic aesthetic that combines repurposed wood, concrete, and steel. With plenty of natural light and indoor plants, it’s a creative space designed to inspire and help you focus. Join us as we reimagine perspectives and transform the way we work.

Special Offers:
1. FREE Coworking Day Pass. Valid for 17 October 2018 only. One pass per RSV-Pea ticket holder based on a first come first serve basis.
2. 30% discount for meeting rooms / event space at Uppercase. Valid till 30 Dec 2018.
