Last Tuesday we hosted The Digital Festival edition of Leeds Social Media Surgery. More importantly we celebrated a year of social media surgeries in Leeds. Our very first event was launched during the festival last year and a year on we’re still here offering free one to one advice for community and voluntary groups.

The event is more popular month on month and I'm very proud that I meet people all the time that have heard good things about the events and want to come.

We have collected some great video of people talking about the event which can be seen here

And have a look at what actually happens at a Surgery by going here.

But if you prefer photos then look at some we've collected on Flickr.

Leeds Social Media Surgeries usually run on the first Tuesday of every month and are run by myself (Monica Tailor) and John Popham. We couldn't run them without the very generous support of The Round Foundry Media Centre who let us use their centre after hours and supply tea and coffee. And of course a big thanks to our surgeons who offer such valuable advice and expertise for free.

The next surgery is on Tuesday 7th December 2010 between 6pm-8pm. The event is open to non-profits, community, voluntary and arts organisations. You can register to come here http://www.socialmediasurgery.com/events/110.
