#EFWeek is a chance for independents to come together and improve their freelance careers and life. As It is a crowdsourced week of events anyone can organise and submit an event. Here's a little bit of help how to do it.
Pick a topic: It can be very general ("Tips to improve your freelance career") or specific ("How to deal with taxes and social security"). It can be skills-focused ("Learn how to use X") or simply a meet-up ("Get to know other freelancers").
Pick a format: This will help you decide what you will do and how. There's a list of formats below.
Find a venue: Ask your local coworking space to host. If you can't find a location, contact us and we'll try to help.
Invite participants: Ask someone to moderate the event. Invite a speaker (perhaps from a freelancers' association). Or keep it casual without a formal agenda.
Promote it: Create a Facebook event (or similar) and invite your peers. Put up a poster in your coworking space. Share the information in Facebook groups and Slack channels. And of course, don't forget to submit it to www.freelancersweek.org so we can add it to our map and promote it.
Make it fun: Provide some drinks, or ask participants to bring their own. Put on some music to create some atmosphere. Greet each participant and introduce them to someone else.
Document it: Take photos and videos and share them widely! You can event try Facebook live, Periscope or Instagram stories. Always use our official hashtag #EFWeek and mention @FreelancersEU so that we can amplify your reach.
Thanks for co-creating European Freelancers Week!
