You are cordially invited to the Research Club Nerd Night at the new Research Club location on May 22 at 5pm!

Research Club has just moved into its first dedicated location after nearly a year of hosting discussions, salon-style dinners, events, and the popular Research Club Brunch. Located in the heart of the central-eastside industrial district, we’re sharing a 660 square-foot space with Grand Detour, Portland’s new center for experimental documentary and new media.

What We are Offering

A large portion of the Research Club community comes from the local tech scene. A few collaborations have already grown out of meetings at Research Club brunch, but we would like to learn how to better serve this (large) portion of our community. The first half of Nerd Night will be a discussion of ways in which the new space and the other efforts of Research Club can contribute to the things that interest you.

What We are Asking -- It’s all well and good to have a new home in meatspace, but if we’re really going to reach people we need a better home online. Ním, the founder of Research Club, will be presenting a proposal for the Research Club Network, an explanation of why it matters, and a call to join the development team.

Afterwards: Stay after for refreshments and a chance to mingle with the artsy folks who will be arriving for the Art Department Orientation. (Feel free to stay for that too.)
