Acquisition support group (and drinks) in south Manchester


Thu, Oct 6, 5:30 PM (UTC)


A supportive and social get-together for FigMates to discuss the acquisition, the future of Figma, and what they want from the community moving forward.

About this event

For anyone joining, Iโ€™ll be wearing a bright orange jacket ๐ŸŠ


Update: this is now primarily a supportive time and space to discuss how the acquisition affects you, speculate the future of Figma, and share some perspectives to help one another.

As the colder autumn months set in, what better way to mark the occasion than getting together in person with affordable drinks and tipple. Meet other Figma enthusiasts to learn, teach, and see what everyone's been trying out.

If you can't make it, don't worry, we'll do another one more central in the near future ๐Ÿ™‚.


  • 6:30pm - arrival in the beer garden
