About the speaker
4 years we’ve been together - isn’t that surreal?!
To celebrate this milestone we are putting on an evening to remember with talks, performances, and celebrations a plenty!
We will look back on a year of talks, inspiration and surreal sparks of collaborations as a result of our monthly get-togethers.
This special evening edition that will also include delicious snacks provided by our wonderful Bross Bagels and cake by Homespun Kitchen is made possible by our incredible partners detailed below.
Speaker and Performance line up (more to be announced shortly):
Faith Eliott (who uses the pronouns they & them) is a songwriter and visual artist currently based in Glasgow. They grew up in Minneapolis, MN and relocated with their family to Scotland at aged 13.

It was received to critical acclaim, played on BBC 6 Music, and the single ‘Pyrite Ammonite’ was included on Steve Lamacq’s ‘BBC Recommends’ playlist.
Recently returning from a year of scooting around the States (where they spent their time touring, recording and printmaking), Faith Eliott is back in the UK and preparing to release a new album, ‘Impossible Bodies’ which will be released on OK Pal Records on April 19th, 2019.

Care Sourcer is the UK’s first comparison and matching site for care. Anyone can enter their care needs at caresourcer.com and find care providers who have immediate availability.

We believe that people deserve better and that we can help.Care Sourcer’s mission has the potential to be generation-defining and we’re growing rapidly; the plan is to grow to 100 by the year 2020 and we’ve been named as one of Insider’s top five startups to watch in Scotland.
