Community is at the heart of what we do at Engage.

Over the last two years we have fostered this community through our supportive Facebook community and through live feeds during live classes.

Young people having a great time in cafe. Friends smiling and sitting in a coffee shop, drinking coffee and enjoying together.

To strengthen this community of creative entrepreneurs we are launching a new meetup for creatives #Engagers looking to connect with others over coffee. Our founder, Donal Doherty has facilitated Open Coffee meet-up launching a group several years ago and loved the format of an informal meet-up to chat and connect over coffee and his goal is to bring that format to the creative industries.

With meet ups planned for Derry~Londonderry and Armagh already, we are looking for volunteers to lead meetups in your local area. If you’re interested in connecting with local photographers and creatives please email
